  • 2-3 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled, fats reserved
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 1-2 tsp. dry ranch dressing mix, we love Lutz's Ranch Dressing, a delicious Kansas-made product
  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 oz. can diced green chilies
  • 2-3 Tbs. diced roasted red peppers, from a jar
  • Toppings as desired, such as shredded cheese, sliced black olives, cilantro, sour cream, etc.


  1. Place the reserved bacon fats into a large sauce pan over medium heat; add the shredded chicken, then stir in dry ranch dressing mix.

  2. Add the cream cheese to the chicken mixture, stirring until the cream cheese is warm and combines easily with the chicken; add the chicken broth, a little at a time, gently stirring until the ingredients are incorporated and the soup is creamy. Fold in the green chilies and pimentos.

  3. To serve, garnish the soup with the reserved crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and other toppings as desired. Serve at once.
