  1. Step 1

    Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and chop when cool enough to handle.
  2. Step 2

    Add tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, garlic, salt, and pepper to bacon drippings. Saute over medium-high heat until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Add water and bouillon; stir until bouillon cubes dissolve. Stir in peas and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Add Swiss cheese and simmer gently until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.
