This turned out great! I left out the bacon and added a couple of extra pinches of salt and sugar. I also used skim milk and two tablespoons of cornstarch in addition to the flour in the recipe to make the soup a bit thicker. Only used 4 potatoes, though I'm sure 6 would have been fine. I cooked it on high for about 30 minutes until the veggies were mashable, then used my potato mashed to break up the veggies in the soup.
When it was done, I thought it was a bit bland (I'm sure part of this is because I didn't use bacon), so I added several shakes of ground pepper and about 4-5 jalapeno slices from the jar, along with about 6 tablespoons of the jalapeno juice. It added a nice subtle kick without being too overpowering.
May try it next time with the bacon, or even used cubed ham. I thought canned green chiles might be good, too, for a SW style soup. Will definitely be keeping this recipe around for future use!
