    2 oz (1/2 cup) lite cheddar cheese, grated
    2/3 cup chopped scallions


1. In a large pot cook bacon until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel and set aside. Discard all but 1 TSB fat. (I skip this step, and use hormel real bacon crumbles, its a time saver, I just start the next step with 1 TBS olive instead of bacon fat)

2 Add carrots, peppers, onions, jalapeno, garlic and cumin; saute about 6 to 8 minutes until golden brown. Add chicken broth, potatoes and salt. Bring to a boil . Reduce heat to simmer and cover pot and cook for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
