- Place bacon in a Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and slightly crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon pieces on paper towels. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons bacon grease from pot.
- Melt butter in the pot with the remaining bacon grease over medium heat. Add onion, red bell pepper, and jalapeno. Sautee until just softened, 5 or 6 minutes. Add minced garlic and saute for 1 minute. Whisk in flour and stir until completely incorporated, about 2 minutes.
- Season with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. Gradually whisk in Swanson(R) Unsalted Chicken Broth, stirring to prevent flour from clumping. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and green chilies; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until vegetables begin to soften, about 12 minutes
- Stir in frozen corn and chopped chicken. Add 1/2 cup of cooked bacon pieces. Add half and half; stir. Reduce heat to low; simmer very slowly until chicken and corn are heated through, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Stir in 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese until cheese melts.
- Pour soup into bowls and garnish with reserved bacon, grated Cheddar cheese, cilantro, and green onions.

Delicious soup. The only thing I didn’t have was enough cheddar cheese, so I put Velveeta in the soup and cheddar as garnish. It was perfect. A bit labor intensiv e, but good!
I had canned jalapeno, omitted the green chilies, and subbed celery for the bell pepper ( I didn't want to go grocery shopping and used what I had). Also used canned chicken. The flavors are a...
This is a delicious soup! I scaled it down to 5 servings and used one large Yukon gold potato. I did not have regular bacon on hand to use, but I'm sure it would be even better doing that step....
I really thought I was going to love this soup. It has so many of the things I love, but in the end I found it unsatisfying. Like a promise unfulfilled I just found myself wanting something mo...
Amazing!!! What a fantastic flavor. My family said to add to our list of favorite recipes. Just enough kick thanks to the jalapeños but not overpowering. Made exactly as the recipe was written.
