 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 Pound Bacon, cooked, reserve the bacon fat
  • 4 TBS Butter
  • 1 Medium Red Onion, Chopped
  • 2 Stalks Celery, Chopped
  • 2 Medium Carrots, Chopped
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 TBS Flour
  • 1 Bottle (12 OZ) Beer, I used Boulevard Bully Porter
  • 2 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 8 OZ Sharp Cheddar Cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 tsp Mustard Powder
  • To Taste, Optional Cajun Spice Mix (I use just 1 tsp)
  • For Garnish 1 tsp Sour Cream
  • For Garnish 1/2 tsp Chives


1. This cooks perfectly in a crock pot with a wand blender. First, cook the bacon, reserve the grease, set the bacon aside, divide in half.
In a large saute pan with the bacon grease, add the butter and mix (and melt).

2. Add the vegetables, onion, carrots and celery and saute for 5 minutes until the onions turn translucent.

3. Add the garlic and continue to saute for 1 additional minute
Add the flour and stir to combine.

4. Deglaze the pan with half the bottle of beer. Move all of this to the crock pot slow cooker.

5. Add the remaining beer, chicken stock. Set the cooker on high, cover and cook allowing all of the flavors to mingle.

6. After 4 hours, take a hand mixer (or move the "soup" to a stand blender in batches) and blend everything until completely smooth.

7. Add the cheese and mustard powder. Blend until melted and smooth.
If desired, add the Cajun Spice mix.

8. Serve HOT, garnish with additional chopped bacon, Sour Cream and Chives and ENJOY!
