Tater Tot Soup

Some friends pass this recipe around.  I made it tonight.  Not a bad option for a chilly fall weeknight.  Now we'll see what this kids think!

Tater Tot Soup

4 slices of bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
48 tater tots (onion flavor suggested - I couldn't find onion so I used regular and added some sautéed onion)
1 15 oz can of corn kernels, drained
15 oz chicken broth
2 cups whole milk (I used 1%)

In a heavy soup pot, brown the bacon until crispy.
Remove bacon to paper towels and drain the pot.

Add frozen tater tots to pot, cook until thawed, 1 or 2 minutes.

Add bacon, corn, broth and milk to pot.  Stir to combine.

Bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and simmer 12 - 15 minutes until the potatoes are soft.

Stir to break up tots some but leave a bit chunky.

Sprinkle pepper.
