Ingredients:
10 slices of turkey bacon (use turkey bacon here…I think the pork variety will be too heavy)
2 tbsp unsalted butter (or olive oil or bacon fat)
1 large sweet onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 cans stewed tomatoes (make sure there’s no added sugar)
2 tbsp smoked paprika
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:
In a large, heavy frying pan, cook turkey bacon. Transfer bacon to paper towel to cool. Once cool crumble into small pieces.

Melt butter into the bacon grease and saute chopped onion and garlic until slightly browned and softened. Add diced tomatoes to onion mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool slightly.

Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender (or Nutribullet if you life in my ‘hood).

Return pureed mixture into pan, adding paprika and salt and pepper. Return soup to a boil and turn off the heat.
