slow cooker beer cheese soup recipeThe inspiration for this soup came from my husband. He has been asking me for years to make him beer cheese soup. Truth be told, I had never heard of it, and never even attempted making it for him. When Progresso asked me to come up with some recipes using their new Three Cheese Recipe Starters, it took about 3 seconds to decide to make beer cheese soup. I really cannot think of a better thing to make for Sunday football watching, can you?

He loved it, and I loved how easy it was to make. This soup does not have to be made in a a slow cooker, but I think that on a football Sunday, when I have a ton of food to cook, it is nice to have something that doesn’t take up any valuable stove or oven space. Serve with some crusty bread, and more beer, and you will have some happy tailgaters.

Be warned that siracha packs a punch, so use sparingly if you are serving this to children. If you do not have any, any hot sauce would work.

    This looks fantastic and I will definitely try it, but I have never heard of Progresso Recipe Starters. Is this available all over the USA? Would I find it in the soup aisle?

  2. Monica says:

    Does the beer cook done then? So it is fine for kiddos?

  3. Michelle says:

    What kind of slow cooker do you have? I’ve been trying to find one that I can brown in!
    I am definitely making this for football next weekend.

    Great recipe!

    Beer recipes are truly among the fun events-to-go with friends.

  10. Lynne says:

    This is the first recipe on your website that wasn’t good. No flavor, strong beer flavor, I have kids and I am pretty sure the beer does not cook out because it has that strong flavor of beer and strong smell of beer. Tasteless, not hearty at all, bummer

  11. Colleen says:

    Can this be made ahead of time? I’m planning to take it to a Superbowl party and I’m thinking of making it the night before. Do you have any recommendations?

  12. Eva says:

    What is siracha?

  13. gee tee says:

    I use a variation of this soup.
    3 peppers, 1 onion, 2 lbs beef kielbasa.
    All sauteed, cooked, then puree with 2 cans of 3 cheese starter.
    ~18 oz stout beer.

    Your cooking time is 3 hours on low.
    It burns up on top.
    How long is cooking time?
    If i don’t have that much time, how long on highsetting?

  14. Meg says:

    I also had a problem with a strong beer flavor. I used miller lite like you, and I followed the directions, do you have any idea what I might have done wrong? I have a Huntington Beach slow cooker. I didn’t sauté the veggies in the slow cooker, as mine doesn’t have that ability.

  15. Chelsea says:

    Hi,

    No one carries this Progresso Cheese Starter Sauce any longer. If using Velveeta in it’s place, how much Velveeta would I subsitute? Thanks in advance!

  19. C says:

    Disappointing: very bland (not even a beer flavor) with a displeasing after taste :(
    Going back to my old recipe from the Midwest :)

  20. Stephanie says:

    The 3 Cheese Starter is now in pouches and it’s 9 oz as opposed to the can which was 18 oz. People complained how many calories it was and the sodium. I don’t like this. Everything in moderation.
