In a large pot, cook bacon over medium-low heat until crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Remove bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate, break into small pieces and set aside.
Drain from the pot all but 2 tablespoons fat. Add onion and increase heat to medium. Cook until golden, about 12 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 more minute.
Add potatoes and broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.
With an immersion blender, purée soup until chunky-smooth (or purée in batches in a food processor fitted with knife blade). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve hot, in bowls, topped with bacon bits, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and chives.
