Bacon-Wrapped Chipotle Burgers

chipolte burger-1Lauren found Rachel Ray’s,  The Book of Burger, at work the other day, and while flipping through I came across a recipe for Bacon-Wrapped burgers. The recipe looked awesome and I decided to make them that night.
 The only thing I changed in the recipe is, I made my burgers on the grill, while Rachel used a griddle.

I really liked this burger, and Lauren said it is her new favorite. The adobo sauce really adds a great kick to the burger, and the BBQ sauce would be good on any kind of protein. This burger is definitely worth trying out, you will love it!
