  • 4 slices diced into small pieces bacon
  • 1 small peeled and chopped onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic

Directions

Cook bacon slightly. Sauté onion and garlic with bacon until tender. Add tomatoes, chicken base, sugar and pepper. Stir well and let simmer for about 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning if needed.
