Fall is here and the cool air makes a great environment for a hardy soup. IMG_9932 This is a quick Beer Cheese soup recipe. You will need:

  • 5 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper, mincned
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2 bottles of beer
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 4 oz white cheddar, shredded
  • 4 oz Colby jack, shredded
  • 4 oz yellow cheddar, shredded

Start by frying the bacon in a large pot until it is crispy. Then add the onion, garlic and pepper. Cook on low in the bacon grease until for about 10 minutes or until the onion goes clear.

Drink half of one yourself and pour the rest into the pot. IMG_9917   Cook for 4 minutes to let the alcohol evaporate out. Then pour in the half and half. IMG_9921 After you stir in the half and half, add the cheese. It is best to add a little at a time so it does not clump. IMG_9924   Continue cooking to reduce the soup to the desired thickness. Garnish with bacon, popcorn, and cilantro and serve in a bread bowl. IMG_9932 IMG_9934 IMG_9935 IMG_9938
