1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the Pico De Gallo. You can make the Pico up to 8 hours in advance of serving, I prefer to do it an hour or two in advance. That way the ingredients stay crisp and fresh while allowing the flavor to develop properly.
2. Turn on the Grill to a medium heat.
3. Take one slice of the bacon and wrap it around the middle of the hot dog. (You might prefer two slices per dog). I use toothpicks that I have soaked in water to hold the bacon in place when I grill.
4. Grill the wrapped dogs on the grill. Turning after about 7 minutes. They will need a total of 15-20 minutes on the grill for the Turkey Bacon to cook all the way through.
5. Grill the buns for about 30 seconds on the grill.
6. Remove the toothpicks from the dogs.
7. Assemble the Dogs as Follows: Bun, Beans, Wrapped Dog, Avocados, Pico De Gallo, Chips, Jalapenos, Cilantro Sprigs and then Mayo.
