Reviews for Potato Beer Cheese Soup
"This is a most enjoyable soup. I too added some celery to the potatoes. I saut?ed them in olive oil along with the onions. I used less beer and milk. The consistency is nice. Its not a thick, heavy soup. I also held back on 2 cups of the chopped potatoes. Then added them to the processed soup. Mine looked more like a chowder.Janie Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor."
"Very good soup for a cool autmn evening. Used all ingredients that the recipe called for, but also added some chopped celery and carrots to the potatoes before cooking. Also, used jalepeno cheddar cheese for a little more flavor. Will certainly make again."
