Beer Cheese Soup
Onion, parsley, paprika and beer flavor this smooth rich Beer Cheese Soup. A family friend used to invite us up for Sunday supper and served this several times. It was so simple and good, I got the recipe for my daughter, who was just learning to cook.

Soup Hints & Tips
- Since winters here are damp and cold, I make chicken rice soup. For a change, I add a package of long grain and wild rice mix. The aroma and flavor perk up a dull winter day.

- On a cold winter day, my family and I love this heartwarming soup made with leftover scalloped potatoes. I place the potatoes in a saucepan and add milk, chicken bouillon and grated carrots. I sprinkle a few parsley flakes over the top and let the soup simmer for 20 minutes. Before I know it, I have a great-tasting homemade soup.
—Mary Landaas, Glenville, Minnesota
- In the colder months, I make a lot of vegetable soup. One day I was out of corn, so I used corn relish instead. The flavor was great. Now I include it in every batch; otherwise, my family asks what's missing.
