  • Cook and stir bacon in large saucepan on medium heat until done. Remove from pan; set aside. Add onions to pan; cook 5 to 6 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently.
  • Add all remaining ingredients except bacon to saucepan; stir. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring occasionally; simmer on medium-low 12 min. or until VELVEETA is melted and soup is heated through, stirring frequently.
  • Serve topped with bacon.

Makeover - How We Did It

Here's a better-for-you alternative that will save you 190 calories and 22g of fat, including 13.5g of sat fat, per serving when compared with the traditional recipe. We did this by using 2% Milk VELVEETA, and fat-free milk and evaporated milk instead of half-and-half. We also substituted a decreased amount of turkey bacon for the regular bacon.
