I'm famous for this soup. I've been making it since I was 15 years old... It's really versatile, You can change it however you want (I tend to use more beer) and it always tastes great! Great to dip with buttered bread. I got the original recipe from a 1990 Herberger's cookbook.

Excellent soup!!! I was given this recipe by my mother-in-law. I made it for family and everyone liked it a lot. I thought it was a little thick, but that can be solved by just adding a little more water. Thanks for sharing!!!
