Tacos can be a messy meal but when eaten as a salad with baked tortilla chips, there's less of a mess. Instead of using cooked and seasoned ground beef, this recipe calls for salsa-flavored burgers.

  • For a charcoal grill, place burgers on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place burgers on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)

  • Meanwhile, divide lettuce among four serving plates. Top with specified amounts of beans, tomato, and sweet pepper. In a small resealable plastic bag place the avocado, water, lime juice, crushed red pepper (if using), and cumin. Seal bag and knead the bag until avocado is mashed and mixture is combined.

  • Place a grilled burger with each salad. Snip a hole in one corner of the bag containing the avocado mixture; squeeze the mixture over burgers and arrange tortilla chips on plates.
