Thick and Hearty Beer Cheese Soup

Created by Jenn's Food Journey

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 Tablespoon all purpose flour
1 (12oz) can evaporated milk
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup beer
2 teaspoons Worcestershire
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese (spend a little money and get really good cheese)
1 cup cooked chicken, cubed


In a large saucepan or soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat.  Stir in the flour.  Continue to stir until the flour becomes bubbly.  Slowly whisk in the broth and evaporated milk.  Bring just to a boil and add the beer, Worcestershire, mustard, salt and cayenne.  Let simmer for 15 minutes.  Slowly add the cheese, stirring constantly, until the cheese has melted.  Add the chicken and allow to simmer (do not boil) for another 3-5 minutes, or until the chicken is heated through.  Enjoy!
