For Spicy Chipotle Aiolo Sauce
3 Tablespoons Fat Free Mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt, Non-fat
2 teaspoons Chopped Chipotle Chiles In Adobo
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
½ teaspoons Ground Cumin

In a pan cook turkey bacon according to directions on package.
Once bacon is done being cooked, take the bacon out and set aside. Add bell pepper and onion into same pan, cook until tender about 10 minutes.
Add ground beef to a small bowl, add garlic powder and ground pepper, mix well.
Divide the raw meat into 8 equal pieces (I used my scale to measure into 2oz each piece). Flatten out the hamburger, and place 1/2 a cheese wedge onto each piece of hamburger. Take the other pieces of the hamburger and place on top of the cheese , and squish them togther and seal the edges so the cheese doesn’t ozzz out. Place on grill and cook until done. About 5 minutes per side.
Place burger on buns, top the burgers with bacon, peppers & onions and sauce.
For Spicy Chipotle Aiolo Sauce:
In a small bowl place all the ingredients together and wisk together until combined.
Makes 3/4 cups or 12 Tablespoons
This is the ultimate burger! Filled with swiss cheese, topped with bacon, peppers and onions and Spicy Chipotle Aiolo Sauce. The sauce is the best! It goes on burgers, sandwiches, salads and works great for a veggie dip!
