How to Make It

Step 1    

Heat large pot on medium heat. Add bacon and cook until the fat begins to render and bacon becomes crisp. Remove bacon and set aside.

Step 2    

In the same pot, add the onion. Cook the onion until soft, then add the lima beans. Add the chicken stock, salt and bring the soup to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the soup for about 20 minutes.

Step 3    

Remove the soup from heat and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, pour the soup into a blender and puree the soup until smooth. Add additional water if you want the soup to be thinner.

Step 4    

Pour the soup back into the pot and heat the soup on medium heat. Add additional salt to taste. Serve warm and top with bacon.
