Always used a complicated cheese sauce for this recipe when in the food biz, but canned soup works fine. Drink any remaining beer. Must supply your own fireplace!

Wow! What a great soup! I have a tattoo of popcorn on my left forearm (that's on the right if you're looking at my picture), so I knew when I read this that I had to try it. Now, some call me a professional "cook", but to think that you can actually used canned milk just blew me away! I use canned milk almost every day (try it in margaritas - it's great!) but I had never thought to use it in soup! Silky, smooth, and packed plum full of popcorn/cheese/beer/milk flavor!I'm so happy!
