      I scaled this back to 1.5 serves for the DM (thinking I would get 2 out of it for her) and it is a lucky thing it is quick to make. Got to step 5 and set the timer for 15 minutes to check and in 10 it was simmered dry and burnt, start again though the second lot of bacon was a lot leaner than the first so I had to add a little oil to fry the vegies and this time I fully covered and set the timer for 5 minute intervals and was ready for step 6 in 15. Trasnferred the lot to a bowl and pureed the lot as the DM doesn't like lumpy bits in her soup and then stirred in some cream, a dollop of sour cream swirled in and decorated with some of the bacon. The DM thought it was so good she decided on seconds and ate the lot. Oh I didn't add the pepper (if for me I woulded have added some chilli but not for the DM). Thank you PaulaG, made for the January Event - Soup is On.

      A very filling and tasty soup! The onions are essential to this recipe. However, I left out the jalapeno peppers due to personal preference. Very yummy! Prepared as a participant in the January Event - Soups on of the Diabetic Forum January 2009.

      We liked this soup a lot, i was quite surprised how smokey it was and i liked the nutmeg flavor. My DH likes his soup come rain or shine so this is an other one to add to the list. I did'nt change anything and we will have it again very good indeed.
