Many of us in the North Dakotas woke this morning to a thick layer of frost on the ground, looks like our summer is at an end. But wait NFL opens this weekend so lets celebrate with some Jumbo Pretzels dipped in Dakota Cheese Soup we prepare as a dip. This is one of the great things about Thunderbird Ranch soups, they can be used for multiple recipes if you think outside the box. So grab a Thunderbird Ranch Dakota Cheese Soup box, 2 cans of your favorite beer, 2 cans of someone else's favorite beer( i.e. the wife's), one cup of cream, and some crumbled bacon because everything is better with bacon. Pour 2 cans of someone else's beer into a sauce pan add soup mix and whisk until smooth. Bring to a simmer for 10 min stirring often. Slowly stir in 1 cup heavy cream and heat to serving temp. add crumbled bacon for garnish. Now flip the footrest out on the recliner and be the master of the remote savoring your 2 favorite beers for game time.
