Recipe by Lauren in Wisconsin
This came from the famous Leinenkugel's Beer Lodge in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I like it because most of the cooking is done in the crock-pot.
- 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of potato soup
- 1 (12 ounce) bottleof leinenkugel honey weiss beer
