Hi Steven,

So glad you liked the recipe! I thought about trying to use real cheese but decided to go with the cheese soup since it was easier, but your version sounds awesome. I'll have to try it next time! Thanks so much for making my recipe and coming back to comment, that's a big compliment for a food blogger!

I "adjusted" this recipe somewhat. It is not too hard to find good cheese in Texas, but it is a challenge to find WISCONSIN products. So I bought three two-pound bricks of Colby and mild cheddar cheeses, along with a brick of our store brand Velveeta. followed the recipe except I did not add the hot sauce. Chili powder provided enough kick. Did find a good apple wood bacon, and the rest of the recipe was easy. I allowed the cheeses to melt in the crockpot, and did brown off a rather large white onion in the butter, and added (SUPRISE!) some Leinie! Our local chain, H-E-B (short for H.E. Butt, which does give some jokesters some fodder...) does carry, obviously, a lot of Texas products, but looking around, I am able to locate, from time to time, some genuine WISCONSIN fare.

Thank you for a WONDERFUL recipe! My "adjustments" worked out just fine! Can't find the game now (11-3, GB vs. Arizona; our local FOX channel is carrying the Washington game...GRRRRR!), but keeping up on the Internet.

As a native Wisconsinite who misses the land of beer, cheese and brats, this sounds absolutely YUMMY! I live in San Antonio, which, unfortunately for me, is heavily Tex-Mex (and a lot of fans to that team up in the northern part of the state...something to do with Cowpies...). So I clamor for anything Wisconsin I can find. Fortunately there is a local store which does carry fresh Wisconsin cheese curds from time to time, and same store just got a shipment of Leinie Red, which I dearly love!

Cheers to my Dad Roger in Brown Deer (Milwaukee)!
