Recipe Box, Short Cut, Slow Cook Sausage & Beer Cheese Soup

 

 

This soup gets a triple star rating

Not only is it delicious ⭐️

It’s made with 2 short cuts

which makes it lightning fast to throw to together ⭐️⭐️

AND

You can make it 3 different ways!

 Instant Pot, slow cooker, or stove top ⭐️⭐️⭐️

 

 

 

 

Cream of Chicken Soup, chicken broth, and beer are the base

Chopped veggies, cheese and sausage are the added ingredients

 

 

 

 

I used Jimmy Dean fully cooked sausage crumbles as another short cut

You can use any cooked breakfast sausage,

Italian sausage or chopped smoked sausage you like

 

 

 

 

I opted to use the slow cook function on my Instant Pot,

First saute the vegetables on the saute function

 

 

 

 

Then add the soup, broth, beer and sausage

 

 

 

 

Stir

 

 

 

 

Cover, set to slow cook and go do something fun for 3 1/2 hours

Add the cheese, and let cook covered, for 30 more minutes

Taste and season if desired

note*

the soup and the cheese is salty so you might only want a dash of pepper

 

 

 

 

Serve it up and enjoy!

    Jenna, this soup looks delicious! I adore soup, and make it at least once a week during the fall and winter. In fact, I’m making white chicken chili today. We are super excited…we are getting a big snow today. We haven’t seen snow in so long, and we are getting six inches today! Thanks for the recipe. I know my family will love it!

    This sounds very good and thanks for reminding me that the can of chicken soup and the cheese can make it a bit salty so I will have to get the low sodium version in both the soup and the broth. We really try to watch the sodium so thanks again for the reminder. 😄

  8. Another dish that is tempting me to get an Instant Pot – but since I do have a slow cooker, nothing holding me back here. I like the flavor combinations. Jimmy Dean sausage is wonderful, too! Certainly this recipe is a keeper!
