This is a really quick to put together and good for those cold winter days. Now that my husband doesn't eat meat, I use vegetarian stock and leave out the bacon.

Really easy to make and very hearty. I made a batch of this, froze it individual containers and then took it to work for lunch. YUM. Will be a nice addition to the arsenal this coming winter.
