To make Cheese spread, combine boursin cheese and miracle whip and refrigerate.

To make patties, combine chuck, charizo, cilantro, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix but handle as little as possible and form 6 equal portions .

To make Jicama Slaw combine the carrots, red and yellow peppers, jicama, cilantro, in a bowl. Mix together in a separate bowel the juice of the lime, rice vinegar, olive oil, red pepper flakes and the kosher salt. Stir well and pour over veggies and let set at least 15 mins so the flavors can marry.

When the grill is ready place a stainless steel pan on the grill and cook bacon for 7 mins. Once done put to the side. Place buttered patties on the grill over direct flames and cook for 5 mins per side or until your desired degree of doneness.

While the burgers are finshing up on the grill brush the buns with butter and toast for 60 seconds. Slather the cheese sauce on the top and bottom buns. Put on large lettuce leaf on the bottom of each bun, followed by one large tomato slice, two slices of bacon, a patty then top with the jicama slaw and add bun and serve immediately.
