This recipe warrants five stars, but several changes are needed. The vegetables need to be cooked much longer than stated to ensure that they are soft. Mine were diced quite small, too. Others had complained that their soup was not thick enough. I gave alot of extra time after the half and half was added while whisking at fairly high temperatures to allow the flour to thicken. The consistency of your soup depends upon this. Last, I would add more beer to achieve the desired authentic taste. You don't want to change the consistency, so I will substitute one cup of the chicken broth so I can add another cup of beer next time. The beer was barely noticeable as written and tasted more like a cheese soup. It was very tasty, so despite these changes, the recipe still deserves five stars. I also chose not to garnish with popcorn. Thank you for submitting this.
