I’ll be honest, I didn’t grow up eating a lot of soups. It just wasn’t something that was fixed in our house. So, for a while , as an adult I tended not to cook soups either.
My husband is working really hard to broaden my horizons, so this winter I have probably made more soups than I have in my whole life.
I haven’t cared for them all, but this one has definitely been my favorite. It is a soup that I could eat over and over. I found the recipe from Taste and Tell and kind of ran with it. Adding mushrooms and changing a couple of things to suit our family better (more bacon.)
I can’t wait to try this soup in the late summer with fresh corn from our garden., but for now frozen corn works just fine.
I loved how well everything in this soup went together. I was really surprised by the flavor that the red bell pepper added, so I recommend using if possible.
