Sharp Cheddar Cheese Soup Re-Run

I think this is my first 2hipchick re-run.
We just returned from the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City.
I'm tired and of all my 10's of readers, I thought some of you might
have missed this great soup.
I first posted back in August, but it is definitely worth a re-run.
Check out Great Wolf Lodge in the Fun Nugget section below.
2Groovydude says it is the best place he has ever been.

Cheddar cheese soup is one of our favorites.
It has bacon. How could you go wrong?
It has veggies.
I'm sure that counteracts the bacon somehow.
I never realized how photogenic food is until I started my blog.
What a nice combonation of colors. Huh?
Not so colorful after the flour is added, but necessary for good taste.
Make sure and cook the flour for a while or you can taste it in the soup.
Flour, not what I'm looking for in my soup. is already looking creamy and good and the milk is not even in there yet.

Milk and cheese.
All that cow goodness.
I could not survive w/o cow products.
Thanks to all you wonderful milk cows.

I want to make some more of this. Of course, it was gone in a couple of days.
As always, soup is even better the next day.
This soup is pretty good the first day.

Pretty soup.
Dip some sour dough rolls in there and eat up!
You won't be sorry.

Sharp Cheddar Cheese Soup

3 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 t. paprika
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 t. mustard powder
1/3 cup flour
1T. cornstarch
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 lb sharp cheddar, grated
Salt and pepper, to taste

In large soup pot cook bacon until crisp. Add carrots, celery, bell pepper and onions to the bacon. Cook over medium heat until veggies are tender crisp, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add paprika, cayenne and mustard.

Stir in flour and cornstarch, cook, stirring constantly, about 3 minutes. Add broth and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened. Add milk and gradually add cheeses, stirring until melted. Do not allow soup to boil after cheese is added to prevent curdling. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


A weekend at Great Wolf Lodge, Kansas City.
We recommend it!
It was totally kid oriented, so adults need not apply.
Just kidding, it was fun for everyone, but they do cater to the young ones.
If you are looking for a great family place to visit, check it out.
Around 4 hours from Tulsa.
