Chicken and Beer Chowder

What  is better on a cool fall day than a warm soup.  Well it may not be fall yet
but today we had a cool crisp day so I made my very favorite soup of all time.
Its deep and creamy flavor is balanced so wonderfully with the dark beer
and red pepper flakes.
I made a double batch so I could freeze the leftovers.  It was a good thing to as we had a surprise visiter come and join us for dinner.

Needed for single batch:

  • Shredded Chicken, I used but you can use 1 lg can of chicken.
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 qt of chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 bottle of dark beer (Amberbock is perfect)
  • 1 cup cubed Muenster cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes  (you can add more if you want it to be real spicy)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • salt to taste

Put everything in the crock pot EXCEPT the cream, beer, and 1/2 the cheese cook on low until potatoes are done.

 1 hour before serving I put the reserved cheese, beer, and cream in and continue cooking for a while.  (You can put it all in at once I have done it.  The cheese all melts into the soup though the other way the flavor is throughout but there are chunks of yummy chewy cheese.  That is what is on the spoon in the photo.  Also the beer flavor is not as strong)


About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
