Big Batch Cheeseburger Soup
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 7 hours
Makes6 servings (2-1/4 quarts)
I've made this soup in the past. If my daughter likes it, it's a keeper. Instead of the velveeta, I grated my own cheddar and used that. If you opt to use a different cheese other than velveeta, make sure it's not the pre-shredded as that has a coating on it that doesn't allow to melt smoothly. I used more cheese than called for and it thickened the soup up nicely.
When making this, think "cheeseburger". Do you put potatoes, celery, basil, parsley and carrots on your cheeseburger? This is a good base to add cheeseburger ingredients- tomatoes, mustard, and other things you would actually want on a cheeseburger.
I wasn't a huge fan of this soup. It's very thin and not very cheesy as written, so if I made it again, I would add more Velveeta and thicken the broth as another review suggested. I don't think I will be making this again though.
Very yummy. I added a small can of green chilies and a little extra cheese. Great with cornbread.
This is the best soup EVER! Made it several times that I had to give this recipe to friends.
Will try to get it made at home or have it at a good restaurant. Thanks
I have to admit that I was skeptical of this because I'm not a big velveeta fan. I am happy to say I was wrong, though. I made this soup exactly as written, and it was absolutely delicious!
Great flavor, a hit at our home! Will definately make this again.
Used as a "base" but made a few changes -- added 1/2 pound more meat; 12 ounces of Velveeta; about 2 cups shredded sharp cheese and 1 cup sour cream. I put everything into the crock pot at the same time but mixed very well ... substituted vegetable broth and used 32 ounces. Checked periodically and added broth to get consistency we liked.
This soup recipe intrigued our family so we decided to try it. The cheese came in a 1 pound brick, and I'm glad it did because we ended up adding the entire 1 pound rather than just the 8 ounces that the recipe called for. Also, it seemed that the broth would be better if it were a little thicker, so I thickened it with a few tablespoons of flour whisked in. With these changes, it was a huge hit at our house. We had a variety of toppings such as red onion, green onion, bacon pieces, and mushrooms.
