It’s getting chilly out there friends. Make soup for dinner! 🥣

The Ingredients List:

  • Butter
  • Carrots + Celery
  • Dried seasonings: Black pepper-garlic powder-minced onion-paprika
  • Flour
  • Dijon mustard
  • Chicken broth
  • Ale
  • Cream + Milk
  • Sharp cheddar cheese

What is Ale? Beer. Well, it’s a type of beer that has a more bitter flavor. We used pale ale, but, you can use any type/brand you wish. Just try and avoid anything with too many hops.

Sharp Cheddar Cheese: I do recommend using a sharp cheddar cheese for this soup. However, if you wish to use something milder, it can be used.

Heavy Cream: Again, I recommend using cream for this one. It does give it a nice creamy texture. But, whole milk can be used as a replacement, if needed.

Carrots & Celery: I minced ours to have a smoother soup. You can chop these to any size your prefer, depending on how chunky you want your soup.

Can I freeze this soup? Freezing any cheese soup is not a good idea. When it thaws, the soup may separate and it’s not very pretty or appetizing.
