Soup, Soup, Soup! We’ve got soup on the brain, can you tell?
Most of you can truly feel the need for a nice, warm bowl of scrumptious soup. Us Arizona folks are still baking in the 100 degree weather, but, I’m a believer that it’s never too hot for a good soup. And so… Im happy to present todays Tried and True recipe for Cheeseburger Soup. This has been my favorite so far! Its creamy and cheesy and just simple enough to be YOUR new favorite too. It also has so much flavor and is so hearty! It’s filled with hamburger meat, carrots, potatoes, Velveeta and so many delicious spices!
Check it out:
- 1-1½ lb ground beef, cooked and drained
- 1 TB onion flakes
- ½ cup butter, divided
- 1½ cups carrots
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp thyme
- 6 medium potatoes (need 8 cups)
- 1 carton chicken broth
- ½ cup onedra (or flour)
- 2 cans evaporated milk
- 1 package sliced velveta
- Bacon, optional
- Peel and chop your potatoes and carrots. Add both to a crock pot with broth. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until tender.
- Meanwhile, over the stove, melt 6 TB of butter in a skillet then add that and the 2 cans of evaporated milk into your pot.
- Cook your hamburger in the skillet with 2 TB of butter and add onion flakes. Once cooked, add to your crock pot along with seasonings and turn on low for at least an hour. Add velveta 30 minutes before serving. Top with bacon bits (optional). Enjoy!

And did I forget to mention it’s topped with bacon?! Perfect for you bacon lovers!
I know it’s basically unacceptable to not like bacon, but I’ll admit, I’m one of those weirdos. Bacon is just too strong for me and I prefer to eat it alone, and not on/in/or around my other food. I think I inherited this from my Mom 🙂 Everyone else, however, LOVED the extra bit of bacon chunks. Try it out and let us know if you prefer with bacon or without! 😉
- DIFFICULTY: Simple
- HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 8-10
- ANY CHANGES MADE: We replaced the onions with onion flakes(If you didn’t know by now, Kristyn and I are onion haters :-/), we replaced the flour with onedra (makes it more stew-like), and we used Velveeta slices instead of the block.
- ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: We loved the changes we made and will probably stick with this recipe forever!
