Then stack 4 of the prepared tortillas (layers) on the other 4 prepared tortillas (layers).Cover with the remaining 4 tortillas. Brush tops with half of the canola oil. Place, oil-sides down, on grill grate. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown on undersides. Brush remaining tops with the remaining canola oil and carefully turn quesadillas over. Grill until cheese is melted and undersides are golden brown. Remove from grill. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve with the Avocado-Red Onion Relish.
