Beer Cheese Soup

Scott and I LOVE beer cheese soup! When Scott came across this recipe in one of my Pillsbury cookbooks, he instantly wanted to make it! We still need to play with this recipe a bit because we weren't in love with it, but overall it was good! It was so yummy on a chilly day!

The Changes
Because it was a little bland, we added garlic, Tabasco, seasoned salt, and a little lemon juice. We used a little more cheese and flour to thicken it as well.

The Lessons
We used a bag of frozen vegetables with carrots celery and onions already mixed together. We threw them into the food processor. It turned out great!

The Verdict
3/5 stars. We thoroughly enjoyed it but there is definitely something missing and we will make it again!
