Wash and dry all produce. Preheat broiler to high or oven to 500 degrees. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Mince a few slices until you have 2 TBSP minced onion, then set this aside in a small bowl. Core, seed, and thinly slice bell peppers. Drain pineapple. Cut chicken into ½-inch cubes.
Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion and bell peppers. Cook, tossing occasionally, until softened, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add pineapple and cook, tossing, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.
While veggies cook, finely chop tomatoes and cilantro. Halve lime. Add tomatoes, half the cilantro, and a squeeze of lime to bowl with minced onion. Toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
Add a large drizzle of oil, chicken, and Southwest spice to same pan over medium-high heat. Cook, tossing, until no longer pink in center, 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Return veggies to pan along with a squeeze of lime and remaining cilantro. Toss to combine, then remove pan from heat.
Rub one side of each tortilla with a drizzle of oil. Place oiled-side down on a baking sheet. Take half the mozzarella and sprinkle it on tortillas in an even layer. Top with filling, then sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Fold tortillas in half to create 4 quesadillas.
Broil or bake quesadillas in oven until golden brown on top, 1-2 minutes. Flip and repeat with other side. (TIP: Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.) Cut into wedges, then serve with pico de gallo and sour cream on the side.
