Easy and Delicious Bacon and Potato Soup.  Who doesn't love potato soup?  Well, add a pound of bacon and you will change just about anyone's mind.  This recipe has few ingredients and it's great for those cold winter nights.  Most recipes call for flour, butter and milk to thicken but we substituted with cream of mushroom soup and it comes out thick and creamy. 


1 pound bacon cooked and chopped

1 stalk celery, diced

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

6 potatoes, peeled and cubed

4 cups chicken stock - 1 box

3 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 can cream of mushroom condensed soup


  1. In a large pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until done. Not crispy.
  2. Remove bacon from pan, and set aside to cool, then chop into small pieces.
  3. Drain off all but about a 1/4 cup of the bacon grease.
  4. Add your onion and celery to the bacon grease and cook for about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in garlic, and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Add cubed potatoes and mix well to coat potatoes.
  7. Let cook for about 5 minutes stirring constantly.
  8. Add your chopped bacon back to the pot.
  9. Add chicken stock.
  10. Add cream of mushroom condensed soup.
  11. Add cilantro
  12. Cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender.
  13. Using an immersion blender, blend about half of the potatoes leaving the soup chunky.
  14. Salt and pepper to taste.
Hope you Enjoy!
