Me: Guess what I'm in the mood for.
Lee: Creme Brulee! (in his very best French accent as if to convince me he knew what it was)
Me: No, but close!
Lee: Beer cheese soup?
I'm not kidding. That's exactly what I was thinking. We hadn't had it in like a year, so I couldn't imagine how he got that out of "close to creme brulee", other than we were watching the cheeseheads.
Anyway, it really is the perfect Game Day food. So without further ado...
Beer Cheese Soup
1 stick of butter
1 cup flour
4 cans chicken broth
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 jar (15 oz.) Cheese Whiz
6 oz. beer
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup freeze-dried chives
Melt butter in pot. Add flour and cook on low heat for five minutes, stirring constantly.
Add chicken broth gradually, while stirring to prevent lumps. Stir in whipping cream.
Add Cheese Whiz and stir until melted and smooth. (Requires a little patience!)
Add beer, Worcestershire sauce and chives, and simmer 15 minutes, stirring constantly. (Trust me when I say that if it starts boiling, it will foam up and over quicker than you can come up with a catchy colloquialism. Mark my words. Clean up while it cooks if you must, but do NOT turn your back on it. Just sayin'.)
Garnish with popcorn and serve!
