This hearty soup never fails to please my family when I make it. It has flavours that are sure to make both kids and adults happy - bacon, cheese, chicken, in a creamy broth.

Evelyn, a good soup, perfect for cold weather. I did add sauteed chopped carrots and celery just because I think those flavors belong in soup. Also added a splash of sherry at the end. We enjoyed this hearty soup and have plenty left for another meal. Thanks for posting. . . . Janet
