Here's a link to our recipe thread, it has some soup recipies to help you get the idea's that you need. Looking at your recipe the only thing I see is you'll have to use cream instead of milk and watch the amount of onions you put in. Other than that, it looks REALLLLLY good.

I know the flour needs replaced. Can we use beer in a recipe? I thought that beer had quite a few carbs... (I'm not a drinker, so I don't really pay attention to that stuff)

There are some low-carb beers on the market -- but I don't know how good they are - I'm allergic to beer.

Hey Robin

I'd replace the milk with 1/2 & 1/2 ....I would also leave out the flour totally, because with the 1/2 & 1/2 and a lb of cheddar cheese, its going to be fairly thick. I dont suspect you will miss it at all. As for the beer, like Susan said, pick up a "lite" "low carb" beer....that way you still get the tang flavour of the beer.

This sounds really good, I just might have to try it!!

p.s. if you want to figure out the carb count per serving, plug everything into fitday.com and then divide by per serving.
