In resealable freezer bag, combine onion slices with dressing; squeeze out air, seal bag and marinate at least 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg and taco seasoning; mix lightly but thoroughly. Gently form into four to six 3/4-inch (2.5 cm) thick patties. Place on oiled grill over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side, until digital instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads at least 160°F (71°C).

Meanwhile, in small bowl, peel and mash avocados. Stir in lemon juice and cilantro (if using); season with salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce to taste. To serve, place each burger onto a lightly grilled tortilla, top with some of the mashed avocado, marinated onion slices and lettuce.
