Not too hot or filling but fairly spicy, pure indulgence for the bacon lover. Lots of flavor and a bit of sweetness.

Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches.

If you vant to make it more filling add one tin of cooked kidney beans with the spices.

  • 1Set stock to simmer in pot and heat a skillet to medium heat.
  • 2Chop and slice all ingredients add bacon to skillet, fry slowly until just crisp. Remove and place aside.
  • 3Brown leeks and garlic until golden in the drippings. Save with the bacon and keep the drippings.
  • 4Add all main ingredients and lemon juice to stock. let simmer for 25-45 minutes. At this point yo can tell how much spices you will need and but beware of the Chipotle and Black pepper, it may get too hot so don't over do it.
  • 5If it isn't "Bacony" enough add some of the dripping but no more than it just give a glossy sheen to the whole surface, but not too much, that will just make it greasy.

    Leave to simmer 10 more minutes.
  • 6Chop the Oregano as fine as you can be bothered to and add to pot. Turn heat off under the pot, leave for five minutes.
  • 7Ladle into bowls, add Creme-Fresh Finish with the last whole Oregano leaves along with the lemon zest on top and serve.
