Tomato Bacon Chowder

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by redwine

A rich tomato bacon soup.So warm and filling on those cold winter nights. My cousin, who cooks at a Hospice Center shared this with me.To make it quick, I use pre cooked bacon. Use real butter, not oleo. Your finished soup will be so much better.I like to serve this with a green salad and a hard roll.Sourdough rolls are great, but any crispy crust bread will do.

I am rating this 5 stars, because it is very easy to make, and is so delicious, I will never open another can of tomato soup again!
