Wi Beer Cheese Soup

Recipe by Haley K
READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 8 cups




  • Melt butter in a large soup pot. Sauté celery, carrots and onions until the onions are soft.
  • Add garlic to pot and sauté one minute.
  • Add chicken broth and potatoes to pot. Bring to a boil and boil until the potatoes are tender.
  • Turn heat down so soup is at a low simmer, Add half the beer to the pot. You can add more later after tasting, but if you add too much right off the bat it can really make the soup bitter.
  • Add cream of chicken soup and stir till blended.
  • Now you can add your cheeses. Add the shredded cheddar a little bit at a time and stir continuously until it is melted and smooth, do the same with the cheese spread. (I'll often toss my shredded cheese with a bit of cornstarch before melting it. This keeps it from clumping up a bit).
  • Now you can add the Worcestershire, mustard, salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. This would also be the time to add some more beer if you'd like.
