Once you get the bacon and ground beef cooked the rest of the soup making process is fairly easy. You can peel the potatoes ahead of time and just leave them in some cold water in the refrigerator until you are ready to prepare the soup. You can leave peeled potatoes in water for about 24 hours in the refrigerator.
