I love soups....in fact, I love any one dish meal or grill! I think this one is best for a cold winter night.

This soup is fantastic...I made a few modifications and loved it. I used turkey bacon and instead of two cups of whipping cream, I used about 1/2 c. cream and the rest fat-free half-and-half. I also probably doubled the spices. This is a keeper!
