    Beer-Cheese Soup

    Source of Recipe

    Recipe Introduction

    Cheese... and beer ... and garnished with bacon? What's not to love? This is a lovely, simple, basic recipe for a gorgeously creamy and rich soup. You can add extra veggies (carrots and mushrooms are great, or how about a bit of diced red or green bell pepper?), or spice it up with a shot of hot sauce or a pinch of cayenne. Very yummy and very adaptable!

    List of Ingredients

    1 stick butter
    1 med onion, diced
    2, stalks celery diced
    1/2 cup flour
    4 cups chicken broth
    12 oz. of beer, one can
    1-1/2 cups sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Bacon, green onion and shredded cheese to garnish.


    Melt the butter in a heavy soup pot. Add the onion and celery. Cook until just soft. Sprinkle on the flour and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Slowly whisk in the broth, then the beer. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat. Slowly whisk in the cheese. Add the mustard.

    Remove from the heat and serve immediately. To reheat, place in a double boiler to prevent scorching.

    Garnish with bacon, green onions, and more shredded cheese.
