DIRECTIONS

  • Simmer potatoes, celery, onions, scallions, garlic, chicken broth and spices in large pot, covered, for about 1/2 hour until well-softened.
  • In a saute pan, brown bacon to make bacon bits. If you are using any other meats, brown them lightly as well. Set aside on paper towel to drai.
  • Drain bacon grease out of saute pan, leaving drippings. Melt butter in drippings, add flour and stir till it browns to make a roux.
  • In the large pot, mash potatoes up somewhat so there are no large chunks. Add roux and beer, stir at a low simmer until it thickens slightly.
  • Add bacon bits, (ham, beef stick or pepperoni if you choose), and cheeses. Stir until blended. Add cauliflower if desired.
  • Top with sour cream when serving, if desired, and a dash of smoked paprika.
