I don't like beer. For me, the only use of beer is in cooking breads and other things. This is going to be too beer flavored for my tastes, but is very similar to another soup called Welsh Rarebit I used to make for my ex husband and his friends. However, I know nothing about this particular recipe other than the fact it looks good and like something forum members would enjoy. So, I'm sharing with y'all.

Bacon Beer Cheese Soup with Chicken
serves 6-8

6 slices thick cut bacon
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
¼ cup butter
¼ cup flour
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons ground chile de arbol (or cayenne pepper; to taste)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup beer, Belgian style wheat beer (Blue Moon)
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups half and half
8 ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Warm an 8 quart pot over high heat. Using clean scissors; cut bacon into pot. Cook bacon until lightly crisp, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cut chicken into bite size pieces.

Remove bacon from pan and place on a plate. Add chicken into bacon grease to cook. Stir occasionally until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken onto plate with bacon.

Cut butter into 1 tablespoon pieces and add to pan drippings. Whisk in flour and spices. Add beer, broth and half & half. Whisk to combine and bring to a bubble. Add cheese whisk to combine, stir until you have a smooth mixture. Add Worcestershire sauce, chicken and bacon. Stir to combine.

Allow to simmer until ready to serve, stirring occasionally.

Garnish with chives and croutons.

I made a pot of this this morning. My wife doesn't like chicken so I cubed up some ham instead. It was good.
