Place butter along with the carrots, celery, onion and red bell pepper into a soup pot and saute the vegetables over medium heat until crisp tender, approximately 8-10 minutes.

Add to the pot, the potatoes, salt and water and boil for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.

While the potatoes are boiling, fry the bacon until crisp and drain. Cut the bacon into bite sized pieces.
