  • Preheat broiler to high.
  • Place bacon on slotted broiler pan. Cook bacon 10 inches from the heat and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until crisp then adjust oven to bake setting for temperature recommended on fries packaging.
  • While bacon cooks, make the burgers. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

  • Form 4 large patties.
  • Add a drizzle of oil, 1 turn of the pan and add the patties.
  • Cook burgers 6 minutes on each side, then top with 2 slices bacon and 1 slice of cheddar, each.
  • Turn pan off, cover with loose foil tent and let cheese melt, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • While the burgers cook, add fries to oven and cook until extra-crisp. Remove from oven.
  • Place butter, 1 tablespoon hot sauce and garlic in a small dish and microwave on high 20 seconds then transfer fries to a large bowl.
  • Toss fries with garlic-hot sauce butter and chives and season with salt, to taste.
  • Slather chili sauce on the tops of split kaiser rolls.
  • Place bacon chili-cheese burgers on bun bottoms and top each burger with lettuce, cilantro, and lime juice.
