  • Chef Tip: Try this beer and Cheddar twist!  Replace 1 soup can milk with 1 bottle (12 fluid ounces) beer.  Proceed as directed above.  Set out bowls of shredded cooked chicken, more crumbled cooked bacon, sour cream, chopped fresh chives, diced avocado, croutons or your favorite potato toppings and let your guests create their own perfect bowl!
