2 limes, divided
16 inches flour tortillas

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Coat 2 nonstick rimmed baking sheets with butter nonstick cooking spray.

Arrange 4 of the tortillas on the prepared baking sheets. Divide the potato mixture among the tortillas and spread evenly. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon chopped onion and about 2 tablespoons cheese over each tortilla. Top each with 1 of the remaining tortillas. Lightly coat the tops with cooking spray. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven, turn over and bake another 5 or 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and heated through. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges.
Create salsa by combining avocado, tomato, and onion in a large bowl. Squirt a couple teaspoons lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Plate a couple of quesadilla wedges onto each plate. Top with salsa, dividing among the plates. Drizzle sauce over salsa and wedges or pour sauce into individual dressing cups and serve on the side. Garnish with lime slices and serve while wedges are warm.
