    Ultimate Potato Cheese Soup Recipe

    Ingredients

    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 1 cup chopped or grated carrot
    • 1 cup chopped or grated white onion
    • 3 ounces chopped lean ham
    • 8 cups chopped potatoes
    • 3 cups chicken stock
    • 1 cup beer
    • 3 oz grated cheddar cheese
    • 3 oz grated gruyere cheese
    • 1/2 cup reduced fat milk

    Directions

    1. In large pot, heat butter over medium until bubbly.
    2. Add carrot, onion and ham. Saute 5-10 minutes.
    3. Add potatoes and chicken stock, stir to combine. Simmer for 20 minutes, covered.
    4. Put about half the soup in a blender and process until smooth. Add back to pot.
    5. Add beer, cheese and milk. Stir to combine.

    Additional Info

    Blending only half of the soup smooth gives it a great texture. If you’d like to make this soup vegetarian, simply skip the ham and use vegetable stock instead of chicken – it’ll still be rich and delicious!
