Cheddar Cheese Soup with Guinness...

Well, St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us. Have you stocked up on your Guinness?.... Last year, I represented Guinness, doing a cooking demo in a Supermarket. I occasionally do these cooking demos for a Marketing firm from Minnesota. They always involve a beer or wine of some kind. The recipes are quick and easy to do, and the customers enjoy them. And of course, they love the idea that they get to wet sample the product too! This week I'll be representing Hieneken with Cabbage mix. We'll see what the customers think of that.....

This demo choice was Cheddar Cheese Soup, made with Guinness. Guinness is a very dark beer with a distinctive taste. They have an amazing history of 250 years that they share on a wonderful website here. There is even a video on how to pour the perfect glass of beer.
They prefer that we keep the beer ice cold when sampling. But, here in our Irish household we prefer it room temperature. This soup is wonderfully cheesy and would serve well in one of those bread bowls. Super easy to do, just a Crockpot meal....
2 - 10 oz. cans of Campbell's Cheddar Soup
2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 - 12 oz. bottle of Guinness Stout or Draught
4 c. of shredded Cheddar Cheese

**In a crockpot, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly
**Cover and cook on low for 30 to 45 minutes, stir occasionally
