Total Time 30 minutes
- 8 slices bacon
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup celery chopped
- 3/4 cup onion chopped
- 4 cups potatoes peeled and cubed
- 1/2 cup quinoa
- 3 cups half and half cream divided
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 cups frozen corn
- chopped green onions for serving
- shredded cheddar cheese for serving
Cook the bacon until crispy and drain on paper towel; crumble and set aside.
In a large soup pot, add the chicken stock and water. Add in the potatoes, onions and celery and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to medium, add in the quinoa and let the soup simmer for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Mix the flour and mayonnaise with 1 cup of the half and half. Stir that into the soup (it won't be smooth yet, but don't worry about that). Stir in the other 2 cups of half and half, along with the corn and crumbled bacon.
Bring the soup back up to a light boil and let simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat and top with shredded cheddar and green onions. Serve immediately.
