Half-and-half and refrigerated potatoes add creamy, rich texture to this soup, while the bacon provides crunch and smoky flavor.

  • Yield: 6 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 35 Minutes


  • 6 slices lower-sodium bacon
  • 1½ cups refrigerated diced potatoes with onions (such as Simply Potatoes)
  • 4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen petite green peas
  • ½ cup fat-free half-and-half
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
  1. Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat 8 minutes or until crisp. Drain bacon on a paper towel; crumble. Reserve 2 tablespoons drippings in pan; discard excess drippings.
  2. Add potatoes to drippings in pan, and sauté 5 minutes or until slightly brown. Add broth and peas to pan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes. Place 4½ cups soup in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Return pureed soup to pan; add half-and-half and pepper. Heat 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Ladle soup evenly into 6 bowls, and top evenly with crumbled bacon.
