Prep and caramelize the onion
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized and softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, start preparing the rest of the meal.
Cook the kale
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, stir in the kale, season with salt and pepper, and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
Assemble and cook the quesadillas
- Rinse the hominy. In a medium bowl, stir together the hominy and as much Aleppo chile as you like and season generously with salt and pepper.
On a work surface, lay out 3  tortillas. Divide the hominy, kale, and Mexican cheese blend among the tortillas and spread evenly; season with salt and pepper and cover each with a second tortilla.
In the same pan used for the kale, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the quesadillas and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and crisp and the cheese has melted slightly, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly, then cut in half. Add more oil between batches if needed. While the quesadillas are cooking, prepare the mango salsa.
Make the mango salsa
- Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit. Cut the fruit into ½-inch pieces.
- Finely chop the piquillo peppers.
- Zest and juice the lime.
In a medium bowl, stir together the mango, piquillo peppers, and lime zest and juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the quesadillas to individual plates, top with the caramelized onion and mango salsa, and serve.
- Measure the onion.
- Rinse the hominy.
- Juice the lime.
- Stir the salsa.
- Top the quesadillas with caramelized onion and salsa.
