I really loved the taste of the burger itself! The queso sauce tasted a little "floury" to me, so I think next time I'll just mix the cheese and tomatoes, adding a small amount of milk. Served mine with onions, diced tomatoes, cilantro, and jalapenos. Very good burger! Made for Photo Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Arrange the 8 whole bacon slices on a broiler pan and bake at 375 degrees until crisp, 10-12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Combine the beef, chopped bacon, grated onion, garlic, chiopotle puree and Worcestershire sauce; season with s&p. Form into 4 patties (thinner at the center) drizzle with oil.
  3. Grill the burgers for 5 minutes on each side for medium.
  4. Make the queso sauce in a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour for 1 minute then whisk in the milk. Stir in the cheese to melt. Stir in the tomatoes. Place the burgers on the bun bottoms and top with the queso sauce, criss-crossed bacon strips, corn chips, and remaining toppings and bun tops.
  5. Serve extra sauce on the side.
