Day 130: Avocado & Cheese Quesidillas

I've been under the weather but we need something for dinner. I made myself a pot of vegetable soup for lunch - to help with the head cold, so I'm going to re-heat that for dinner. Whet to go with it? The pantry is a little bare, Pesach is coming and I'm trying to use up what we have. I poke around, find a huge, ripe avocado, hmmm, some tortillas in the freezer, a jar of salsa, some cheddar cheese - Quesadillas!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words - so here you go...

Vegetable soup
Stock: 4 very small potatoes, 2 old carrots, heart of a celery bunch, 1 1/2 onions, 8 cups water, brought to a boil and let simmer for an hour or so
