Very good. I used olive oil to sauté the vegetables in lieu of bacon fat to make it lighter. I also added red pepper flakes to add a little heat/spice. I also added grilled chicken to add more protein to make it a full dinner soup.
Really tasty, a little labor intensive but worth it. May add a little more red pepper and carrot next time for color.
Really good!!! I used a green bell pepper instead :) but it still tasted amazing!!! I’ll def. make this again.
Very easy and tasty definitely hit the spot

So good. I used 3 pieces of bacon instead of one and added some crushed red pepper for a little heat. Didn't change anything other than that and it's spectacular!!! Make sure to follow directions exactly to keep milk from scalding.

This is a really delicious recipe, even toddler friendly. I made add a few adjustments to our taste liking: I used turkey bacon, added 3/4 vegetable broth and 1 can coconut milk instead of milk. I also added two cloves of garlic. Also, I added a pinch of cumin for smokiness and 1 tsp of turmeric. Lastly, a bit of cayenne for heat. When it was done, I used an emersion blender to purée about 2 cups and then added it back to the soup.
