What a great way to get more nutrient dense beans into your diet! This soup is rich, creamy, and satisfying. Best of all it’s super quick to make, with the assistance of some of the cheese sauce left over from your Mac’n’Cheese.
2c chicken stock
1c- 2c left over cheese sauce
6 strips of bacon(diced)
salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot sauté the bacon and onions until the bacon is crisp and the onions are caramelized slightly. Now pour a little water into the sauté pan to help loosen the tasty little bits from the bottom of the pan.
In a blender put 1 1/2c of beans and all of the chicken stock and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into the pot with the bacon and onions and simmer on medium heat. Whisk in the cheese sauce and the remaining 1/2c of beans. Simmer on medium for as little as a few minutes to as much as several hours.
Serve with fresh crusty bread and a salad. YUM!
