Spray the grill plates of the Cuisinart® Griddler® Junior. Preheat the Griddler® in the closed position to high while assembling quesadillas. In a small bowl, toss the cheeses, salt, pepper and lime juice to combine. Lay two tortillas down on the work surface. Evenly divide the cheese mixture between the two tortillas, leaving a ½” border. Top with the avocado slices and the reserved tortillas. Arrange quesadillas evenly spaced on the bottom grill plate of the preheated Griddler®; apply medium pressure to handle for about 1-1 ½ minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove quesadillas. Let rest for about 2 minutes before serving.
