This soup was especially good for the time I put into it. I only had a large can of Guiness and I think that made the soup a little bitter so I added some Velvetta that I had. It seemed to do the trick plus I added bacon bits when I served it. I will definatly do this one again.
This soup didn't work out for either my husband or myself. We couldn't even eat it. It was extremely bitter without any Guiness taste. I even added extra cheese as someone message in a previous post it still was bitter. My sympathetic husband who will eat anything I cook, couldn't do this one. Sorry not for us.
Made this last night and it was a huge hit! I did sub out cheddar and dubliner cheeses for the cheese whiz. My only thought is that there needs to be better documentation on how dark the roux needs to be. I didn't get mine quite dark enough, and it left things a little raw flour tasting for a while.
I substituted Kerrygold Dubliner cheese for the Cheese Whiz...It was very good
Excellent! Next time I'm going to try it with potatoes added.
I made this soup exactly as printed. It was great, served the soup at our gourmet dinner club on St. Patricks Day, everyone thought it was marvelous. Next time will cut the recipe in half this version makes a huge batch.
very good! i used veg broth instead (vegitarian) real shreded cheddar and added parsley. :) *very* easy to make. :D
