Combine cranberry sauce, chipotle, adobo sauce, and zest for the sauce.

Arrange ¼ cup cheese, one-fourth each turkey, avocado, and onion, followed by ¼ cup more cheese on half of each tortilla. Fold empty sides of tortillas over fillings.

Heat 2 tsp. oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high.

Cook two quesadillas at a time in skillet until golden, 23 minutes per side; transfer to a cutting board, rest 2 minutes, then cut each in half. Heat remaining 2 tsp. oil in skillet and cook remaining two quesadillas; serve with sauce.
