Beer Cheese Soup

Another Brilliant idea... gone to pot.
When we took our road trip to Guntersville I had the brilliant idea to go get a couple of pints of draft beer for the guys to drink while we watched football at the lodge. Unfortunately I didn't taste it before walking out with my arms full of 'octoberfest stout'. One sip and it was deemed 'nasty' by the experts. I wasn't about to just toss it.
So I carried it home and turned it into a delicious soup. I modified a recipe from Food Network... and it was perfect!
Beer Cheese Soup
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons flour
1 Tbs minced garlic
3 cups chicken stock
2 cups grated extra-sharp Cheddar
1 cup dark beer
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook quickly for a minute. Whisk in the flour and make a light brown roux. Whisk in the stock, stirring to prevent lumps. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Slowly add the cheese and stir until melted and smooth. Add the beer and cook until heated through. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
I served mine with a sprinkle of mozzarella and handful of pretzel chips on the side. Just right for a football afternoon!

Another brilliant idea... gone to the pot.
Y'all enjoy,
Sandi

I'm so all about soup lately. Our temps here in Vegas dropped from the 90s to the 60s in about one week and soup seems to be just the right thing. Thanks for the ideas.
