Calling All Soup-er Heroes Take 2

It has been rainy and miserable the last couple weeks.  I finally was fed up with it and decided to make soup.  I was holding out as long as possible since I don't want to think about Fall being here already.  This soup is a remake of this one....this time it was even better.  My boys loved it. If they could bring HOT soup in their lunches, they would have definitely brought this warming soup.  BTW these two superheroes loved this soup.

Soup-er Hero Soup
adapted from:

3/4 cup chopped onion
2 large carrots, peeled and shredded
1/4lb bacon, chopped
1/2 lb ground beef
1 t pepper
4 cups beef broth
1 1/2 cups half and half
2 T unsalted butter
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

In a 2quart pot cook bacon.  Remove bacon and grease. Stir in ground beef, onion and carrots with pepper. Cook until thoroughly cooked, crumbled and onions are translucent.  Pour in broth with butter and potatoes from the mix. Cover and boil about 25 minutes (until potatoes are softened and cooked). Slowly sprinkle in powder from the potato mix. Stir well to combine then incorporate half and half about 1/2 cup at a time.  This powdered mix with thicken your soup.  Serve with cheese and bacon bits sprinkled on top.
