Recipe for easy potato carrot soup with bacon

Here you get an easy recipe for a delicious and smooth potato soup with carrots, chili and bacon. The chili and bacon takes the traditional potato soup to whole new heights. Not only is it easy to make, it’s also very quick and easy, and it’s budget friendly.

This soup makes for a great dinner. Especially on a rainy day, or simply after a long day when you’re tired and need something hearty. It is also a very filling meal. 

If you want to replace the bacon, or add another protein in addition, you can also fry some Serrano ham on the pan and top the soup with that.

Potato soup doesn’t go bad by standing in the fridge for a day or two. Actually the soup will just chill and draw more flavor over time, so if you get leftovers - or just want to make the soup a day or 2 in advance - it’ll make for a great meal then. Sometimes if we make a large portion and have lots of leftovers we’ll put the soup in the freezer. It’s very easy to reheat from frozen and that way your easy dinner just became extra convenient.
