Beer Cheese Soup
Ok, I hate to admit this, but it times of comfort and need, I turn to my midwest college experience and crave beer cheese soup goodness. I am looking for a recipe, one that doesn't have veggies or meat thrown in, but is sheer cheesy and beer goodness with great flavor. Please help a girl that is in need of comfort food. Kick boxing doesn't always cut it....nor yoga. Sometimes I just need a homecooked meal.
This is from a long gone restaurant in Dallas called Baby Doe's Matchless Mine Co.
This soup was locally famous and I've made it many times. It is excellent.
8 c Milk
2 ts Tabasco sauce
4 ts Worcestershire sauce
4 tb Chicken base
16 oz Cheeze Whiz
6 tb Cornstarch
1/3 c Water
1 c Beer
1/8 ts MSG
Combine milk, Tabasco, Worcestershire, chicken base, &
MSG. Bring to a boil, stirring regularly.
Add Cheeze Whiz, after warming in hot water or in
microwave. Mix in well.
Dissolve cornstarch completely in the water. Add to
soup, which should thicken immediately. Reduce heat a
bit and stir in beer.
To serve, ladle into bowls and dust with cayenne
Here's the recipe my step-family gave to me. It's not as good as the Grainery's was, but it's pretty dang good! Also quite easy to make since it's a crock pot recipe.
1 lb Velvetta cheese - cubed
2 cans cream of ______ soup (I use cream of potato or cream of chicken)
10 oz cheap beer. (avoid expensive beer... it doesn't make it taste right)
1 Tablespoon Worchestershire sause
1 Teaspoon Paprika
Place all ingredients into a crock pot and cook on high for 2 hours, stirring often. Tastes wonderful with fresh bread or croutons.
