Ultimate Potato Cheese Soup

Ultimate Potato Cheese Soup

Hearty beer and rich cheeses give this potato soup decadent flavor.

Blending only half of the soup smooth gives it a great texture. If you’d like to make this soup vegetarian, simply skip the ham and use vegetable stock instead of chicken—it’ll still be rich and delicious! EQUIPMENT NOTE: You will need a blender.
