  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon

Cook the bacon in a Dutch oven over medium heat until done. Remove the bacon from the pan and set it aside. All but 1/4 cup of the bacon grease should be drained.

Cook celery and onion in reserved bacon drippings for 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes after adding the garlic. Toss in the cubed potatoes to coat. Cook for 3–4 minutes. Return the bacon to the pan, and then add just enough chicken stock to cover the potatoes. Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender.

Melt butter in a separate pan over medium heat. Incorporate the flour. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Incorporate the heavy cream, tarragon, and cilantro. Bring the cream mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened. Combine the cream and potato mixtures in a mixing bowl. Return half of the soup to the pan after pureeing it. Seasonings can be adjusted to taste.
