  1. In a small skillet, heat the oil over med-high heat; add in onions and saute until they are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the pesto, lime juice, cheese, and meat.
  3. When the onions are ready, add them to this mixture; taste and adjust with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a large skillet (or two, to work faster) over medium heat.
  5. Add a tortilla to the pan; spread a scoop of the mixture on half of the tortilla, and fold the tortilla in half.
  6. Repeat with a second tortilla, so two quesadillas are cooking at once.
  7. When the bottoms of the tortillas are lightly browned, flip them and lightly brown the second sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  8. When both sides are browned, remove the tortillas to a plate.
  9. Repeat with remaining tortillas and pesto mixture.
  10. Slice the cooked quesadillas with a sharp knife or pizza cutter and serve them with salsa.
