“I really love this soup! I love how everything is pureed except for the crumbled bacon and green onions at the end. If you like a chunky soup, you could omit pureeing the soup or just puree half of the mixture! This recipe can easily be done in the crockpot, too. Great served with cornbread. Enjoy!!”

Directions

  1. Saute onions, celery, carrots, peppers and garlic in bacon drippings in saucepan over medium heat. Cook until crisp-tender.
  2. Stir in beans, broth and cayenne. Simmer 15 min., stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour soup into food processor or blender container; cover. Process until pureed. (I use an immersion blender, so I puree right in the saucepan.) Return soup to saucepan.
  4. Stir in bacon; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  5. Garnish with green onions if desired.
