  5. Place tortillas, oiled sides down, on a large baking sheet. Spread the chorizo filling over tortillas on baking sheet. Combine cheese and cilantro or parsley; sprinkle over filling.
  6. Top with the remaining tortillas. Brush with the remaining oil.
  7. Place quesadillas on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat.
  8. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes or until filling is heated through and tortillas are starting to brown, turning once halfway through grilling.
