<br>- 6 tablespoons margarine
<br>- 2 cups chopped onion
<br>- 1 cup all-purpose flour
<br>- 12 cups chicken broth
<br>- 4 cups milk
<br>- 8 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

<br>- salt to taste
<br>- ground cayenne pepper to taste

<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: In a large pot over medium heat, combine the butter or margarine and the onions. Saute for about 3 minutes. Add flour and stir well until mixed. Add broth, raise heat to high and bring to a boil. Whisk mixture to keep flour from clumping.
<br>step 2: Add milk, reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the blue cheese and stir until blended, then add the spinach and cook 3 more minutes. Add the cream, bring just to a boil, turn off heat and stir well. Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
<br>step 3: Allow to cool and puree in a food processor or blender a little at a time. Ladle into individual bowls and sprinkle with the bacon. (Note: to serve cold, omit the bacon and add a little freshly squeezed lemon juice.)
