Grease 2 large rimless baking sheets; set aside.

Peel and pit avocado; place in bowl. Add cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper; mash until smooth. Stir in green onion.

Using 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) round cutter, cut out rounds from tortillas. Thinly spread with cheese mixture. Top half of the rounds with salmon; sandwich with remaining rounds, cheese side down and pressing lightly. Arrange on prepared pans. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 hours.)

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven, turning once, until crisp and golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
