1 (12 oz.) package

Jones Dairy Farm Dry Aged Bacon, diced

1 cup

Yellow Onions, diced

1 cup

Carrots, diced

1 cup

Celery, diced

2 cloves

Garlic, minced

4 cups

Chicken Broth

1-2 tablespoons

Lemon juice, to taste

3 (15 oz.) can

Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed

1 (8 oz.) can

Tomato Sauce

1/4 teaspoon

Red pepper flakes

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1 teaspoon

Fresh thyme, optional

1 cup

Sweet corn, optional


  1. Cook bacon in soup pot or Dutch oven until crisp. Remove with slotted spoon to paper towel-lined plate. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease.

  2. To the hot bacon grease, add onions, carrots, celery and red pepper flakes. Cook over medium heat until ingredients begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Stir in chicken broth and beans. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a slow boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.

  3. Transfer half of the soup to blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Return puree to soup pot and stir. Add tomato sauce, 3/4 of the reserved bacon and lemon juice (and optional sweet corn and fresh thyme) and stir to combine. Let soup simmer until heated through, about 30 minutes. Serve topped with remaining bacon. Season to taste.

Ratings and Reviews


I have made it a 3 times since i found it and it falls short of the mark. Taste just like bean soup without the smoky bacon flavor. I am disappointed 😞. I figured that with the high reviews of 5 that it was going to taste like bean with bacon soup. Now I have to look for another recipe. 😒


I use ham instead of bacon but by far the best recipe yet


On my favorite recipe list

I used canned navy beans but everything else was exact. This was easy, super delicious and is now on my favorite recipe list. Next time I am going to use great northern beans.
