Hi rebeccamealey!

My husband likes the canned version as well; not bad for a quick fix. This recipe takes that basic flavor and kicks it up with lots more cheese and bacon....SO YUMMY!

Hi ptrg777!!

I've heard of people adding beer too, usually the darker ales (although, I'm not a fan of adding beer to foods that don't cook on the grill.)

YAY for football season!! My team is actually doing well this year (Skol Vikings!!!) Anywho, this easy recipe is sure to be a hit at your next game get-together...with that much bacon & cheese, you're sure to SCORE!!!

Peter from New York on October 24, 2012:

Ok, this is a bit calorie dense for me, as I am trying to shed some pounds, but boy does it look tasty. I will keep this in mind for when I reach a goal and want to treat myself with something tasty and indulgent. I will share this with family also, as it would make a great soup for a football party or any party for that matter.
