Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Soup

This is as good as comfort food gets in a bowl!

Everything works together in harmony, leaving you with a bacon-y, smokey, and mellow heat with each and every bite you take.

  1. Slice the bacon into 2,5cm slices and cook until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan while reserving the fat.
  2. Dice the jalapenos (remove the seeds if you do not like the heat), and sautee in the bacon fat. Remove from the pan while reserving the fat.
  3. In a pot, add the bacon fat, broth, butter and spices. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Using a stick blender, emulsify the broth to incorporate the fats into it. Once done, add the cream and grated cheese.
  5. Stir together and season to taste. Add the jalapeno and bacon into the pot and let it simmer for 5 minutes before serving.
