onion and garlic sauteed in olive oil. sliced chorizo or linguisa sauteed, add to pot, sliced carrot (not truly authentic but I like it!), chopped kale, water or broth (I use chicken broth) bay leaf, thyme, chili flakes, slices of potato at the end. serve with crusty bread.

proportions are up to you. I used 4 qts broth, 1 bunch kale, 3 potatoes, 2 carrots, 1 onion 4 cloves garlic, 12 oz chorizo, 1 bay leaf, 1 bunch thyme, 1/2 tsp chili flake, salt and pepper and paprika to taste.

enjoy

I've done them that way when I had my 10" cast iron skillet, but it can be tricky. I have an 8" now which would be easier, I think. It can also be done toasting the bottom on the top of the stove, and toasting the top in the oven.

I like your ingredients. I used taco meat mix, cheddar and a little salsa. I'll have to try it your way.
Yep, crisped in a frying pan with a bit of veg oil. I use flour tortillas and this time I chose the small ones so they were easier to flip. I don't fold my quesadillas over, just spread refried beans on 1 tortilla, put in pan with oil, add chicken and cheese and top with another whole tortilla. Dh gives rave reviews every time
