  • 8 Slices of Bacon, Cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 Medium Onion, Diced
  • 2 Carrots, Diced
  • 2 Stalks Celery, Diced
  • 6 Medium Yukon Gold Potatoes, Diced
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • Pinch of Ground Red Pepper
  • 6 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Cups Shredded Queso Chihuahua, Mexican Melting Cheese
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese, for serving
  • 1/2 Cup Green Onion, Diced, for serving


  1. Fry Bacon in a heavy-bottomed soup pot on medium heat, until bacon bits are crisp.  Drain and set bacon bits aside for serving.  Drain soup pot and set back on burner.
  2. Add the diced Onion, Carrots, and Celery to the pot and saute until tender.  Add the diced Potatoes and cook until tender.  Season with Salt, Black Pepper, and Red Pepper.
  3. Add 6 cups of Chicken Broth and bring soup to a slow boil.  Simmer on low heat until potatoes are fork-tender.
  4. Whisk together 1 cup of Whole Milk with 3 Tablespoons of Flour.  Pour flour mixture into soup while stirring slowly.  Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Use an immersion blender (Affiliate Link) to puree the soup, leaving some visible pieces of vegetables.  Alternatively, let soup cool and use a blender to puree, then transfer the pureed soup back to the pot and reheat.
  6. Stir in 1/2 cup of Heavy Cream and 2 cups of Shredded Chihuahua Cheese.
