This is like the BEST soup. My family will request it every time they get. One year my son was having a pot luck day at school and insisted that he bring this soup. It was a BIG hit. I have added bacon for a change and added pepper jack cheese.
Why do people rate something one star be ause they don't like the ingredients?
Everyone in my family raves about this recipe. Even when I double the recipe, I rarely have many leftovers.
Absolutely delicious! I did tweak it a bit by adding 2 tsp ground mustard and 1/4 tsp cayenne, and since we don't eat Velveeta I substituted sharp cheddar. I will definitely make it again. Thanks!
First time I made this, I found the Velveeta made it a little thicker than I was expecting, so I made two adjustments kicking the beef up to a full pound and using 8 ounces of apple wood smoked gruyere cheese instead of the Velveeta. The end result was a submission to the food service at work's annual soup and chili contest with a first place win in the soup category and a rotating place on their menu for the past winter season. It was so popular that it has become a fixture on the menu every third Friday and almost a year later still always sells out!!
Yum!! Mmm good!! I have been making this for about 8 years and it is always a winner when I make this. My friend you doesn’t eat cheese looks forward to when I make it. Have never had anyone turn this away. It is a very hearty soup and fills you up. If you have any left it freezes well.
We love cheeseburger soup! The potatoes and cheese make this very good.
Delicious!! I use 1 lb. ground beef, and make it a day before I plan to serve it as we think it's better the second day.
Definitely not a keeper for our house. Made exactly according to directions and our 2 year old pushed her bowl away saying “No, thank you! Yuck!”, the teenager tried two bites and decided on a sandwich, and the two adults ate it but said never again. Will stick to a traditional potato soup.
We have been offering this for many years in our school concession stand. I think if we stopped, there’d be a riot! The commenters on this site have become more vicious over the years. If you don’t like a recipe, then give it one star and move on.
