Instant Pot Beer Cheese Soup Recipe
Many years ago, on a trip to Wisconsin, I fell in love with beer cheese soup. I had stopped for lunch on my way to visit my brother in Minnesota.
It was September, but the cold wind was howling so much that you could feel the car sway as you drove down the pine tree-lined highway.
I had enough of the white knuckled driving so I stopped at what seemed like a sketchy roadside restaurant just off the exit in the middle of nowhere.
I felt safe once I noticed that the parking lot was overflowing with patrons who had stopped to enjoy lunch.
Once seated, the waiter brought me a drink and I asked him what was the most popular dish. Without hesitation, he informed me that bacon beer cheese soup would sell out every day. “Of course,” I thought, “It’s Wisconsin!”
I didn’t feel like sorting through the menu so I ordered the soup and salad.
After that first bite into the warm, cheesy soup, I was hooked! The bacon and green onions were sprinkled lightly on top, adding great flavor and texture. If that wasn’t good enough, I had a small loaf of bread to mop up the extras!
Fast forward a few years and I began to crave that delicious soup. One look in my pantry and I knew I had to make Instant Pot Beer Cheese Soup! Why not, I make every other soup in the Instant Pot now?
I did a little research and experimenting and found that in just a few short minutes, I could have my favorite beer cheese soup on my own table!
Everything is made directly in the Instant Pot so that there is only one dish to clean. Plus, no more watching over the stove waiting for the cheese to get stuck to the bottom.
I have even made this Instant Pot Beer Cheese Soup for St. Patrick’s Day! I use Irish Cheddar Cheese and Guinness beer and the flavors blend perfectly together.
Bonus — add in a little extra cheese and use it as a dip for your next tailgate or party!
