When chilly weather is in the forecast, nothing warms you up like a bowl of soup. Add a hearty helping of Wisconsin cheese, and you’ve got an easy, comforting meal that’s sure to fill you up in no time.
While you can’t go wrong with any soup recipe that calls for Wisconsin cheese, here’s a look at five of our favorites, each featuring a different variety of Wisconsin cheese in the recipe.
Jumpin’ Jack Chili: Most chili recipes are tomato based, but this easy recipe combines shredded rotisserie chicken with broth, great northern beans and Wisconsin colby and monterey jack cheeses.
Cheddar, Swiss and Beer Soup: This simple recipe for beer cheese soup is full of complex flavors with nutmeg, garlic, pale ale and not one but two Wisconsin cheeses, cheddar and aged swiss.
Cheesy Potato Soup: A twist on a classic, this recipe for cheesy potato soup is unlike any other because it is made with Wisconsin brick cheese. Brick is a tangy surfaced-ripened cheese that gets its name from Wisconsin cheesemakers who traditionally used bricks to remove excess moisture from the cheese as it cured.
Cheesy Lasagna Soup: This tomato-based soup is sure to be a family favorite with Wisconsin mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta cheese. Italian sausage adds heartiness and a hint of spice.
Cauliflower and Aged Cheddar Soup: With white wine, cream and plenty of Wisconsin aged cheddar cheese, you can’t go wrong with this soup. Did we mention it also makes great leftovers?
