6 slices of (turkey)bacon chopped
1 large onion, diced
2 red bell peppers, seeded and diced
1 1/2 cups diced celery
2 pounds frozen corn, defrosted
3/4 cup flour
8 cups chicken stock
1 cup fat-free half and half
2 cups 1% milk
1 1/2 cups each of reduced fat shredded jack and cheddar cheeses
several dashes of tobasco sauce
1 tbs olive oil(if using turkey bacon)
1/2 cup sliced green onions
In a large pot cook the bacon until crisp. If using regular bacon, drain off all but 1 tablespoon of fat and add the onions. If using turkey bacon, add the olive oil. Add the onion to the pot and cook on...
