This Portuguese style Chicken, Bacon and White Bean Soup is so simple to make and so delicious!
This Portuguese Bean Soup could literally not be easier to make.  It doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, but when they all cook together they make this soup one of the most delicious there is.  Of course, with everything the quality of ingredients matters, so I would look for a good thick slab smoked bacon, and find the best white beans you can.  It will make all the difference.

I’ve lived in Europe for a long time now, and I am still constantly amazed at how the most simple ingredients can make food taste so good.  I’ve yet to visit Portugal, but after tasting this soup and being blown away by it I am most definitely gonna take a few days and go there to EAT.  Seriously, this soup is fantastic and I highly recommend you try it.  YUM.  🙂

If you’re looking for a quick dinner that’s hearty and delicious – this is the one for you. Prep time is only 10 minutes, and it’s done cooking in about 20, so you can have it on the table in under 1/2 an hour. It makes a pretty decent amount – enough for 6 – 8 people.
