Hearty beer and rich cheeses give this potato soup a decadent flavor.
Ultimate Potato Cheese Soup Recipe
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
In large pot, heat butter over medium until bubbly.
Add carrot, onion and ham. Saute 5-10 minutes.
Add potatoes and chicken stock, stir to combine. Simmer for 20 minutes, covered.
Put about half the soup in a blender and process until smooth. Add back to pot.
Add beer, cheese and milk. Stir to combine.
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!
