2. Evenly sprinkle each tortilla with the chopped red onion and spring onion
3. Gently fold each tortilla in half to form a half moon shaped sandwich, press gently so the tortillas stick together
4. Lightly oil a shallow frying pan, or griddle pan, when hot cook the tortillas 2 at a time for approximately 2 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Remove from pan and cook the rest of the quesadillas
