The greatest bar snack ever is the Jalapeno Poppers by a long shot! Lately I have been thinking about ways to incorporate these flavors into everyday food. Todays task is soup!

This super creamy hearty soup starts with a pureed cauliflower base and has sweet peppers, corn and of course jalapenos for added texture. Serve it with smokey bacon and salty cheddar cheese right on top!
