Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup
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… I’m happy to present today’s Tried and True recipe for Cheeseburger Soup (and yes, it’s different from our Hamburger Soup). This has been my favorite soup recipe we’ve tried so far this year! Its creamy, cheesy, and just simple enough to be YOUR new favorite too.
Best of all, it’s made in the SLOW COOKER (easy peasy)! Crockpot soup recipes are by far my favorite kind of soup recipe because, honestly, who likes standing over the kitchen stove watching over soup as it cooks? Not me! Just prep the ingredients, throw them in the crockpot, and after a few hours, you’ll have this dreamy finished product filled with hamburger meat, carrots, potatoes, Velveeta cheese and so many delicious spices! This Cheeseburger soup recipe has so much flavor and is so hearty, you’re bound to love it!
How to Make Cheeseburger Soup
We love just how simple this cheeseburger soup is. To make it, begin by peeling and chopping your veggies and then adding them to a crockpot with the 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 crockpot. Cook your hamburger in the skillet with another 2 TB of butter and add onion flakes (or onion powder). Once cooked, add to your crockpot along with seasonings and turn on low for at least an hour. Add Velveeta 30 minutes before serving.
Definitely a delicious and easy cheeseburger soup!
And did I forget to mention it’s topped with bacon?! Perfect for you bacon lovers! I will say, my hubby was surprised there were carrots in the soup since you really don’t put carrots on cheeseburgers, but somehow they worked out perfectly in the recipe! I hope you’ll agree. 😉
Can you Make this Soup on the Stove?
Yes, indeed. Peel and chop your veggies and then add them to a pot of simmering broth for 20 minutes. Add 6 TB butter and evaporated milk and let simmer for an additional 10 minutes. While that is simmering, cook your hamburger meat in 2 additional TB of butter along with onions/onion flakes/onion powder. Once the meat is no longer pink, add the meat and the seasonings to the broth pot and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Add Velveeta cheese and simmer an additional 10-15 minutes.
Can you use Other Cheeses instead of Velveeta Cheese?
Yes. The Velveeta does make it extra cheese and creamy, but other cheeses like cheddar cheese also work well.
