This is one FLAVORFUL outstanding soup. It’s true comfort in a bowl, full of bacon and jalapeno deliciousness. Perfect to cozy up with on a cool winter day. Or for us in Southern California, we’ll just imagine the cold and snow that everyone is posting on facebook.

I bring you this recipe if you’re experiencing the brutal cold of winter with a wish for some sunshine.

Soup is always a good idea, no matter what the weather. It’s like satisfaction in a bowl and I’m a soup girl through and through!

And this soup makes its way into the soup rotation at our house since it’s always enjoyed, dunk in some crusty bread and dinner is SERVED!!!

*by the way I’ve been baking up some homemade bread lately and let me tell you I’m a bread addict… I love fresh baked bread and if you do too, you’ll be excited when I share the new recipe soon, after some more testing. I’m trying to get the timing shorter so it doesn’t take hours of prep to bake it. In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying all the test batches.

Here is the OVERNIGHT Artisan Bread Recipe I usually make.

I’ve been recently baking some other varieties of bread, like french bread, and chewier french bread and will share those soon.

  1. Hi, I’m wondering if other thickeners would work that aren’t starch or carb-based. I know it’s only a smidge of flour but I’m looking for alternatives.

    1. You can add egg, or egg yolk as a thickener to some milk and whisk it in, that works well. Alternatively, if you simmer cream soup on low temperature and evaporate more of the “water” it’ll thicken as well, but that takes about an hour. I often use egg to thicken and it gives the soup a rich flavor.

    1. You can add any liquid you’d prefer, wine or chicken broth come to mind first. I don’t think I’d prefer ginger ale, beer gives it a depth of flavor but you can just use more chicken broth to keep it simple. I fear the soda will be too sugary.
