- Coat an outdoor grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
- In a medium bowl, combine the beef, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and ½ tsp salt; mix well with your hands. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 3 ½-inch (bun-sized) patty. Arrange the patties on the grill rack; close the lid and grill until the bottoms of the patties are well marked, about 5 minutes. Turn the patties over, close the lid, and grill until almost done, about 4 minutes. Top the patties evenly with the shredded cheese; grill until the cheese melts, about 1 minute.
- In a small bowl, mash together the avocado with the remaining ⅛ tsp salt. Spread 2 tbsp beans over the bottom half of each bun. Top each with 1 patty, one-fourth of the avocado, 1 tbsp salsa, and the top half of the bun.
