Bacon Cheese Soup

Bacon Cheese Soup - Using Monterey Jack

Since nearly all canned soups are full of wheat, sugar, and other processed ingredients, we had to find a way to make our own.  This is a keto (hflc) friendly soup, as well as paleo (if you allow dairy).

Note:  This soup is very filling thanks to the keto aspect.
