A delicious and filling way to celebrate St. Patricks Day! Serve with crusty bread for a hearty meal!
Combine broth and beer in a soup pot, then whisk in the soup mix. Stirring frequently, bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer.
Chop up bacon into bite-size pieces and brown in a frying pan. Drain on paper towel and then add to soup. (If adding extra cheese, put it in now so it can melt)
Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Before serving, add parsley and salt and/or pepper as desired.
