Chipotle and Beer Mac & Cheese Soup

This is a thick, hearty soup. Great in front of the fireplace, with someone special and some crusty warm bread, on a crisp fall night. It is also great for when you have the crowd over to watch the football game. It is not so spicy that your "oh I don't like spicy food" friends can't enjoy it to.
