So I guess it’s fall now.
I am not saying I hate fall, I am just saying that I am not ready for the end of summer this week.
But everyone is all excited and crap about fall.
I love fall, I really do.
But do you know what comes after fall? Winter. Winter comes after fall.
So that is why I am not really celebrating yet.
Give me a couple of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Pumpkin and let me get there, m’kay?
So in keeping with the whole “fall thing” going on currently, I decided to make soup.
I should say that when I made this soup recipe, it was a beautiful 65-degree day; one of those unicorn days the midwest sees weather-wise.
It’s either hot as hell or cold as the arctic here with little in between, so when we get those days we do things like making soup.
Or open the windows.
Since the windows were already open, I decided to make soup.
Soup isn’t really keto/low-carb friendly, so I have had to do lots of searching to find ones that are a) good and 2) don’t include xantham gum.
That’s a little low-carb humor.
I found this gem of a soup recipe at this website via Pinterest and let me tell you, the author gets right to the point.
A pet peeve of mine is food bloggers who go on and on AND ON about stupidity and share a fagillion pictures of their kitchen, their stove, the pan, the dog at their feet. ENOUGH ALREADY I JUST WANT SOME DAMN SOUP.
But this chick was like I got a recipe, here are a few pictures of what it will look like, here’s a recipe card.
Five ingredients for an amazing tasting soup is pretty good, don’t you think?
It’s actually better than amazing tasting.
Have you ever wanted to drink cheese?
Now you can.
I made it gross.
It’s better than a cheese shake, I promise.
Jalapeno Business Cheese Soup
(It’s a pun. I was trying to be a food blogger. I’ll stop)
- 1 cup chicken stock or broth
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 teaspoons pickled jalapenos
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- Add all ingredients to a saucepan (only add 1 cup of the cheese at this point, though) and cook on medium heat. Stir constantly until soup comes to a boil, then add the second cup of cheese and stir until it melts. Serve immediately.
I added green onion and bacon to the top and this was DIVINE.
Even better than a cheese shake.
Happy Fall week.

Yes! Does anyone really read the novel before the recipe?? Anyway, this looks yummy and fancy when you add the sprinkles on top.
I LOVE FALL TOO!! but not winter
Bacon sprinkles are my favorite kind of sprinkles.
Oh just wow!! Pinned this one to try later – sounds AMAZING! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party – hope to see you next week too. In the mean time, have a fabulous week!
Thank you for visiting!
Even though it’s hot and sunny today, I’m making soup for dinner tonight – because I had more dental work this morning. Just the last part of the crown – which is “nothing” compared to the first part – but I have a headache from the stress of going to the dentist (I have dental phobia and get myself really worked up), plus my mouth is still a little sore. Anyway, I’m making Pasta Fagioli soup. One of my go-to soup recipes, but I know it’s not low-carb.
PS – I’m with you on the sadness that fall is coming.
Pasta Fagioli is my favorite soup! It’s not low carb but I am making it this fall anyway because carbs and fall just go together.
Let’s get together soon. 🙂
Sorry sistah, but 7300 minutes until Fall! I’m counting and I’ll also be making this soup! I made the hubby’s favorite cheese soup from childhood last year and was bloated for like 2 solid weeks from the sodium. This I can totally justify!
(I also try to keep my blog posts short but I hope not too short. I know people have short attention spans these days but I hate when a blog post for a recipe is a ton of scrolling!)
Your recipe posts are PERFECT. Probably why I was drawn to your blog, to begin with. 🙂
“I Made It Gross” should become a recipe series. I might steal that lol
OMG if you do, I want in.
What an interesting recipe. Definitely one for Autumn. I love cheese so bring it on xx
AMEN TO THAT. 🙂
That soup looks like the kind of thing that could warm one right to the bowels of their existence—delicious (as long as there is a throne reservation available…I think you smell what I’m cooking…ok, that just made things more gross than a cheese shake)
Cheese shakes. Bowels of soup. Just think of the restaurant we could come up with.
haha, I’ll have to make this for my husband. I can’t do hot! Thanks for sharing at the To Grandma’s House We Go DIY, Crafts, Recipes and More Link Party. I pinned this to Pinterest! Hope you can join us again next week.
This is SO good, but if you don’t like hot, you won’t like this soup! HA! 🙂
Thank you for visiting me! 🙂
I Love, love, love cheese soup. I’m definitely going to try this. I’ve made other cheese soups before, I can’t believe I didn’t think to add jalapeños.
I love cheese soup too! This one is spicy but amazing and low-carb too! Thank you for visiting! 🙂
