Getting Cheezy...

My favorite way to warm up is to dig in a huge bowl of cheese soup. I've tried many different kinds of the years and my favorites usually have beer in them. I'm not a drinker (just ask the Bee's who the only one was drinking a Coke at our fancy dinner at Nationals!), but something about the beer added gives the soup a kick.

But since we are a teen-friendly site and I don't want anyone getting hooked on the soup, so I chose a more under 21 friendly recipe. It's still delicious.

1qt. water

4 chicken bouillon cubes

1lb. Velveeta processed cheese

1c. chopped celery

2 1/2 c. diced potatoes

1 small box or bag of cauliflower, carrots, AND broccoli

2 (10 3/4 oz.) cans of cream of chicken soup

1 c milk

Mix water, bouillon cubes and vegetables together. Cook until cubes are dissolved and vegetables are tender. Add Velveeta and soup. Simmer until cheese is melted then stir in milk. Use low to medium heat to avoid scorching. Stir continuously. ENJOY!!!

Enjoy this with some freshly baked French bread and butter.

Yum. That soup looks mucho delicious! But I've never heard of putting beer in cheese soup. Hmm. I might have to raid the husband's garage fridge and try that.
