    MBChickie made chili last weekend. In fact, I am eating some as I type this. Can't do chili two weekends in a row.

    Beer & Cheddar soup has been sounding tasty lately.

    Yeah, PM me the recipe. Even if I don't make it this weekend, it'll be along winter and many soups will be crocked.


    BTW people, open a crock pot recipe book and you'll see plenty of soup recipes. :blah:

    One of my favorites :thumb:

    New England Cheddar Ale Soup

    ¼ cup butter
    ½ cup minced onion
    1/3 cup grated carrots
    ¼ cup flour
    ½ teaspoon dry mustard
    ½ teaspoon paprika
    ½ pound grated cheddar cheese (2 cups)
    3 cans Chicken or Vegetable Broth
    1¼ cups Half and Half
    12 oz ale (I've been using Rogue Dead Guy)

    Directions
    Melt butter in a large, heavy saucepan. Add onion and carrot, cover and cook over low heat about 5 minutes.
    Blend in flour, mustard, and paprika. Stir in cheese and 1 can of chicken broth until cheese is melted.
    Add remaining ingredients; simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Makes 7 cups
    Tip: Garnish bowls of soup with minced chives or chopped parsley.

    So far I've made it with Pete's Wicked, Newcastle, and Brooklyn and it turned out great each time. I think the only reason the recipe states "brown ale" is to keep people from dumping a can of Bud in.

    I really like carrot-ginger soup this time of year. Roughly chop a pile of carrots and a couple onions and/or leeks, saute in butter or oil until getting soft and just a little color. Throw in some chopped ginger, maybe a little garlic, then cover with veg stock. Simmer until everything is basically mushy, then puree in a blender. Put it back on the stove, reheat, and finish with some half and half or cream and slivers of fresh ginger, maybe some cilantro if you've got it, S&P to taste. If it's too thick you can thin it out with more veg stock or cream. Same idea works great for squash too. :thumb:
