  • 1 ⅓ cups chicken broth

  • ½ cup diced carrots

  • cup chopped onions

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 (16 ounce) jars processed cheese spread (such as Cheese Whiz®)

  • 1 pint half-and-half

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer

  • 1 ⅓ cups milk

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Stir chicken broth, carrots, onions, and black pepper together in a large saucepan over medium heat; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the carrots are tender, about 30 minutes.

  2. Stir cheese spread, half-and-half, beer, milk, and Worcestershire sauce into the broth; cook, stirring frequently, until the cheese spread melts completely into the mixture, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Whisk flour and butter together in a small bowl; stir into the mixture in the saucepan until smooth. Bring the liquid to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring frequently, until the soup is thickened, about 1 hour.
