5 cups potatoes, peeled & diced
4 chicken breasts, diced & cooked

2.5 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheese
2/3 cup green onions, sliced

In a soup pan, cook bacon until crispy.  Take out of pan & set aside in a bowl.  Add carrots, onions, green chilis, serrano peppers, cumin, & garlic to the pot.  Stir fry in bacon grease until onion is see through.  Add broth & scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.  Heat to boiling.  Add potatoes & salt, reduce heat, cover, & simmer for 15 minutes.  Add chicken & bacon & cook 10 minutes.  Combine flour & milk in a bowl to make a smooth paste.  Add to soup & stir until soup thickens up. . . about 5-10 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Stir in cheese until melted.  Top with green onions & serve.
