    LisaB (Nashville, TN)'s Note:

    (Copycat recipe for Flying Saucer Beer Cheese Soup) I have been a long-time fan of the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Nashville, Tennessee. They have a fantastic beer cheese soup on their menu that I order every time I go there. One day, I got brave and asked them for the recipe. To my surprise, they brought me a list of ingredients that are in the soup; however, no measurements. So, I have been trying for years to get the taste just right and I think that I have struck pure gold (cheese, that is).

    1. 1
      Add butter and peppers to large soup pot over medium heat. Sauté until peppers are tender.
    2. 2
      Add flour and half of chicken broth, stir with whisk to remove lumps and cook until thick and bubbly.
    3. 3
      Add remaining chicken broth, beer and half-and-half and stir. Add cheese a little at a time and stir constantly, making sure the cheese does not stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. Cook until cheese is melted and smooth.
    4. 4
      Add ground cayenne pepper, salt and two dashes of cayenne pepper sauce and stir.
    5. 5
      In a separate bowl, mix cold water and corn starch until smooth. Pour the mixture into the soup pot to thicken and add body. Continue to cook until soup is smooth and creamy.
    6. 6
      Transfer soup to a crock pot to keep warm until ready to serve. Additional cooking in a crock pot will ensure that the soup is over indirect heat, so the cheese does not burn at the bottom of the pan. Also, it will allow the red peppers to cook and soften into the soup.
    7. 7
      Serve soup in a bread bowl or in a bowl with large chucks of white bread on the side for dipping. Enjoy!

      I tried this soup on Halloween night, and I could not stop eating it. My only regret is that my stomach was not bigger to accommodate more of that warm, cheesy goodness. Absolutely scrumptious.
