How to Make Macaroni And Cheese Soup


  • 1Cut the bacon strips into quarters.

    In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove it to paper towels to drain.
  • 2I left about a tablespoon of bacon grease after removing the bacon from the pan, then add the onion. Cook the onion for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and continue cooking until the onion is soft and lightly browned, about another 5 minutes.

    Add the flour and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a simmer, stirring often.

    Add the milk, chili powder, pepper and mustard. Return the soup to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • 3Add the cheese and bacon and continue cooking and stirring until well blended, about 4 minutes.

    Add the macaroni and return to a simmer. Remove from the heat and serve, sprinkling with parsley.

    An update: This soup really thickens up after cooling, I just added more liquid to it, and was great.
