There's nothing like a nice warm bowl of soup on a cold day. This soup is super tasty and filling. It is also great for families on a budget. I estimated that this dinner cost about $7 and there was leftovers. I have a family of 5. I make this at least twice a month during the cold season. We love it.

Step 1: You Will Need

5 pounds of potatoes(peeled and cut)
8 ounces of mild cheddar cheese (shredded)
2-3 jalapenos (take out the seeds and inside if you don't want it spicy)
1 tablespoon of chick bouillon powder
salt and pepper to taste
half a package of bacon or why not just use a whole package -bacon is awesome 
sour cream and chives to garnish (chives not pictured)
about 2 cups of milk
Whooo hooo! Congratulations on your SECOND PRIZE WIN IN THE CONTEST! <br>Fabulous, fabulous!
It looks so good!
thank you
This looks a lot like Zuppa Toscanna (a.k.a. Chapstick Soup)? Sounds good!
Thank you. Wow, I have never heard of that, except at Olive Garden and their soup is nothing like this soup. I will google it. <strong>:)</strong>

I guess there are quite a few differences.<br> <br> Clarification: Chapstick Soup - &quot;<strong><u>I</u></strong>&quot; call it that due to the grease it leaves on my lips when eating it.
Lol,chapstick soup , that's funny.<strong> :)</strong>
I ever have to look very far for a great recipe because of instructables! I will make this! Not sure when but it looks too tempting to pass up! You had me at jalapenos! Thanks for sharing. <br>Sunshiine
I love instructables too :)<br>Thank you for the nice comment. Please let me know how you like it. Actually I'm going to make it again in a couple days.I keep seeing the main image and I want to eat it.LOL :)
Yummers! This is this loaded baked potato soup I am always buying from the deli at the grocery store and I have been wanted to try to create it myself. This seems pretty darn close! I'll have to try making it soon; the jalapeno would be a nice addition to try :)
Thank you, it is very good. Let me know how you like it, if you ever make it :)
