1 slice Organic Applewood Smoked Bacon (or Organic Peppered Bacon. Both are found at Whole Foods)

3-4 large leeks (After cutting off the root, use all of the white and light green parts, but just 3 inches of the dark greens, all sliced will yield about 12-14 cups.)

2 c peeled and sliced carrots

3 cloves garlic, peeled

1/2 t chili powder

1/2 t dried oregano

1/2 t dried thyme

1/2 t salt (it doesn’t seem like much, but your broth will also have sodium, so don’t overdo, you can always add more later.)

1/2 t pepper

2 bay leaves

1/2 c white wine

8 c chicken broth (I prefer making my own out of Better Than Bouillon paste)

1/2 c fat free half and half

1/4 c Harvey’s Bristol Cream Sherry
