DIRECTIONS

  • In a stockpot or large dutch oven, cook bacon until crisp; drain and set aside, reserving bacon drippings in pot.
  • Sauté celery, onion, and green pepper in bacon drippings until softened; add flour and cook for 2-3 minutes; whisk together milk and tomato soup, then pour gradually into pot and stir until smooth; add all ingredients except bacon; heat and stir over medium heat until soup is slightly thickened.
  • Top with crumbled bacon and serve. Note that the soup may be pureed. I like to rough-puree mine until it is mostly smooth, but has some small pieces of tomatoes and veggies remaining.
