For every super bowl game just like the new ads I make a new dish. I am doing it for last 10 years; yes after marriage. My hubby loves to watch super bowl, rest of games he watches here and there as he is busy doing things in between. However for super bowl, everything comes to standstill, even kids joined this time. Usually I make some snack for super bowl, this time; it was a cold day, so decided to make a soup. Yes I made this Shiner Bock cheddar cheese soup with jalapenos. We enjoyed it a lot. However the team which we rooted for lost the game, the Seahawks made a blunder on the last play, resulting in a win for New England Patriots. So in the end super bowl game ended on a sad note for us.
I saw this recipe Shiner Bock and Cheddar Cheese Soup with Jalapenos in Wednesday’s paper. The Houston Chronicle has a section of food in Wednesday’s paper. I liked this recipe immediately as it has my favorite beer Shiner bock and favorite cheddar cheese. This recipe is from the book, Texas on the Table: People, Places, and Recipes Celebrating the Flavors of the Lone Star State by Terry Thompson-Anderson. Shiner Bock is European style dark Beer, which is specialty of Texas. At first I was even reluctant to try sharp cheddar cheese; once I tried I got hooked to it, now I buy only sharp cheddar cheese.
During the last shopping section I asked my hubby to bring some Shiner bock beer. He bought a pack of six. I used a half of bottle for this recipe and rest we drank during super bowl. Still few are there, now you can think what speed we are drinking beer. Actually it is potato, carrot, celery, jalapenos soup with Shiner Bock beer and cheddar cheese. Earlier I tried beer bread with Shiner bock that was delicious.
It is a rich and creamy soup with cheese and cream too. This soup is served with garlic crouton. First time I made homemade garlic crouton, even though recipe asked for French baguette, I used normal white bread as I don’t have in my hand. Only change I made to the recipe is added extra pepper to it.
Here comes the delicious and creamy rich soup you will sure go back to one more serving at least.
