Lightly coat the grill plates of the Cuisinart® Griddler® Jr with the nonstick cooking spray. Preheat 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 on the work surface. Divide the cheese mixture equally between the two tortillas, leaving a ½-inch 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 to 1½ minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove quesadillas. Let rest for about 2 minutes before serving.
