Revision: Easy and delish. A couple of notes. I did not add seasoning salt. I add a NO salt all purpose seasoning, just a teaspoon and then a pinch of salt. I also used LOW salt broth.
I did add fresh chives to finish off the soup add the end of cooking. I thought it needed a bright fresh flavor. For my tastes in the second 1/2 of the batch, I did add 2 small garlic cloves, and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
But I like a lot of spice. It was very tasty and easy. I was very pleased.
Great recipe. I used ham instead of bacon to cut fat content. Thanks for posting.
This is a great recipe! We've been making it for a long time and have made some changes. We use beef broth rather than chicken and instead of seasoning salt we use garlic powder and just a touch of cayenne. We rarely add salt as the bacon takes care of that fairly well. Thanks for posting this recipe! We're actually making some tonight!
Delicious and simple to make.My family really enjoyed this. Instead of putting it in the blender I just used my imersion blender. It couldn't have been easier. We topped it off with some sour cream and had some hot biscuits to top off the meal. Thanks for posting!
Great recipe! I really loved the extra zip that the bacon gives. This was a little salty for my taste, but I'll cut the added seasoned salt in half next time. Otherwise, I loved it!
Mmmmmmmm... so easy.. so good... you will want to fill your blender a little less than 1/2 to avoid an explosion. I had mine with a little sour cream and tabasco & yum!
