1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Arrange 4 tortillas on an ungreased baking sheet. Top each with 3 tablespoons cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons green onions, 1/4 teaspoon jalapefio pepper and 1 teaspoon cilantro. Cover each one with a second tortilla, pressing down lightly to form a sandwich.
2. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese melts and the tortillas are crisp. Cut each Quesadilla into 8 wedges and top each wedge with a spoonful of salsa if you wish.
