Creamy Tomato Soup with Corn, Chicken and Bacon

Creamy soup without the guilt, yes you heard me correctly 🙂  Have you ever used buttermilk in place of heavy cream for cream soups? Well, it works beautifully and really cuts down on fat and calories, woohoo!

I will be the first to admit that I don’t use it all the time, heaven knows I love my heavy cream, but sometimes it is a great option….like in this speedy tomato soup that’s done in about 15 minutes.

I love picking up some nice bread bowls from the grocery store to serve homemade soup in. Feels kinda like you are eating at a restaurant, you know? I added a small can of Mexicorn from Green Giant that has some red and green peppers mixed in. If you can’t find it at your grocery store, just a normal can of corn is fine 🙂

Hope you all enjoy!

    Good work with your blog. I am going to share it with my friends on facebook.
    Making a chicken coop really is a relatively simple event when there\\\\\\\’s a assortment of blueprints and prebuilts offered. Whichever way you do it, it\\\\\\\’s a terrific activity in many ways. Fresh eggs everyday, along with the enjoyment that comes as a result of experiencing a good dose of going back-to- nature and self-dependence.

    This soup was great! I took the long road and cooked the bacon, and onions before hand in the soup pot then added the chick stock to pull up all the bits. Left out the buttermilk and didn’t miss it. This was such a great recipe I just had to roast a chicken just for it. Turned out to be a new family favorite! Thank you so much for the inspiration!!
