Well, I went ahead and braved the weather to get to a store. Looks like today will be a go.

I haven't even started yet and already I have another question Instruction number one says heat the butter and oil in a large pan. That is easy enough, but then it goes on to say Cook the chiles, bacon, onion, and garlic over medium heat for 4-5 minutes until soft. Add the chicken and cook until just colored.

My question is do I put a lid on the pan? Do I stir while it is cooking?

Edgar, first make sure you are using a pot, not a pan, large enough to hold your liquid... No do not cover the pan, stir occasionally until your onions are translucent, and I would make sure the bacon gets some crispness to it... I'll be around if you have anymore questions...

Edgar, I can see this question coming so... generally speaking a pan has one handle and a pot has two. This is not always true but it is a general rule of thumb. When I was first learning to cook I had to think about what I was cooking. A pan was for frying as in a frying pan and a pot was more something to put soup in. Often a recipe will tell you to saute the veggies. Don't bother to do it in a pan and then transfer it to a pot. Just saute in the pot. Hope this is helpful.

By the way, it's probably a good thing you went to the store today. I doubt that you will be able to get there tomorrow. (Same goes for me) Try to stay warm.

Wow, I can't believe the turned out so good on the first try. I was sure I would mess something up. I thought I put in to much onion but that did not end up the case. The soup is certainly anything I could have bought preprocessed. Thanks for the help everyone I could not have made this without your help.
