When it's cold outside and you do not feel like cooking, beer cheese soup is a perfect way to trick your wife into letting you have beer with her fancy Olive Garden soup.

What you will need:

1 can (14.5 ounces) chicken broth

1 cup beer

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 teaspoon dried thyme

6 ounces American cheese, shredded or diced

4 to 6 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Step 1: Combine Ingredients

Combine broth, beer, onion, garlic and thyme into the crock-pot. Cover and cook on low for four hours. Remember to set a timer!

TIP: Choose a light-tasting beer when making this soup. Hearty ales have a stronger flavor that might not please your family's taste buds. Leave the hearty ales for when you have an all adult beer cheese soup party!

Step 2: Add Cheese

Now that all of your ingredients are in the soup, cover and cook on high for 45 minutes to 1 hour on or until the soup is hot and the cheese is nice and melted.

TIP: Stir the soup well the blend the cheeses. Experiment with different types of cheese to add a different taste. Just remember, just like wine, different types of cheese pair well with different types of beer.

Step 4: Enjoy!
