I am not kidding to you when I say this is the absolute best soup that I have ever made and probably ever tasted.
Why is that you’re wondering? I am sure the pork fat has a lot to do with it. I mean we are talking about a pound a bacon here! My boyfriend would not be happy to here about me making a soup that has a pound of bacon, but that is okay ( he does not eat pork.. at all). But he sure is missing out on a great opportunity with this soup. So let me tell you what happened when I tried this soup. Now you guys know I am lactose intolerant, right? So I took a Lactaid pill before I tasted it. I wasn’t thinking that it was going to be as good as it was. Anyway, so after I let the soup go through that last simmer, I took a spoonful of the soup and my eyes nearly popped out of my brain. I could not stop eating it. I just took a spoon straight to the pot. The only thing that would have made that meal complete would’ve been a toasted baguette or some type of crispy buttery bread. It’s too bad I had to give it away. If I hadn’t I would be 2 pounds heavier and extremely gassy.
This soup is a “man soup”. It has all the right components beer, cheese, spice, and hardly no vegetables. Ladies if you are looking for something to make for you man during the game or a poker night, this is a winner!
