DIRECTIONS

  • Dice bacon strips and fry until crispy; remove the bacon pieces & reserve 3 tablespoons bacon grease.
  • Dice 1 onion (medium to large) and cook in the reserved bacon grease until onions are soft and translucent.
  • Add 3 cups of chicken stock.
  • Add 1 cup of half and half (can also use 2% milk).
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (more or less to taste).
  • Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt (more or less to taste).
  • Add 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter.
  • Optional: toss the crispy bacon bits back in the soup pot (healthy? not in this kitchen! And it tastes so good.).
  • Stir until combined and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • Simmer for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • If you like a creamy soup, you can use a stick blender on this to blend in the onions.
  • Serve hot, with an optional garnish of chopped green onions.
