I have never tried to make beer cheese soup before, but I love ordering at restaurants when we go out for a meal... So, when I saw this recipe I knew that I wanted to try it right away. The kids were blown away by the bowl of popcorn that was set on the table in front of them.... "You mean we get popcorn for supper?" They thought that this was the coolest part and it definitely helped the soup go down for them! Very quick and easy to make and delicious to eat!
