Spicy White Cheddar Beer Cheese Soup

Spicy White Cheddar Beer Cheese Soup

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 cup celery chopped
1/3 cup carrot finely chopped
1 cup white onion chopped
1 Tbsp. garlic chopped
1 Tbsp. jalapeno chopped (remove seeds)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup of light beer a light lager is preferable
1 cup chicken stock
1 bay leaf

  1. In a deep pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add celery, carrot, onion, garlic, and jalapeƱo. Cook until veggies become very tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Add flour, and stir continuously to avoid browning. Let the veggies and flour cook for a few minutes, as this will alleviate the "flour" taste from occurring in the soup. The consistency of the veggies and flour together should feel similar to a vegetable "paste" as you stir it.
  3. Slowly add the beer, while still stirring continuously. Then, slowly whisk in the chicken stock. Add the bay leaf, black peppercorns, caraway seeds, and fresh thyme.
