Another soup recipe so soon? Yes – It’s my Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup with Bacon Crisps and you’ll LOVE it.
Forgive me, dear readers. You know I love you. But you’ll really like this one. I promise.
Cross my heart.
So, for the story behind the food, here’s what happened. Over the weekend while I was still in Dallas, my 16 year old started feeling sick. He stuck it out for a day, but my husband ended up taking him to the doctor.
He has bronchitis. Oh, dear.
This obviously indicates a need for everybody in the household to participate in a family hand washing class where we sing Old MacDonald Had a Farm and scrub until the song is over.
If you’re wondering if I do that, well of course I do!
I’m a nurse, people. I mean, come on.
Ok, fine….whatever, not every single time.
Today he stayed home from school with his 101° degree fever-havin’-self and I made him some homemade chicken noodle soup. It’s not typical, though – he doesn’t like carrots, onion or celery in his soup, so this was custom made just for him with chicken, spaghetti, plenty of salt and pepper and a couple of other things that are none of your business. (The non-customized chicken noodle soup will definitely have onions, carrots, etc. along with other things, by the way).
At least right now this second. They will become your business a little later on when I put the post up.
Anyway, after that was made, I had some extra chicken that needed a purpose. So what does a girl do with shredded chicken, lots of homemade chicken broth, a quiet house, and an appetite that is always begging for heat?
She makes Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup, of course.
Serve soup topped with bacon crisps and more jalapenos.
The bacon crisps soak up all that jalapeno and cream cheese flavor that makes a popper party in your mouth. This is so creamy and delicious from the cream cheese, so tasty and with a slight bite of the jalapeno – but when you bite into the bacon crisps it’s just perfect.
