Cheeseburger Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

We are finishing off soup week with a flashback to a cheeseburger soup recipe.  I originally found this recipe over at Dine and Dish.  She makes this every year for Halloween.  I did use more Velveeta than the original recipe called for.  In fact,  I doubled the Velveeta.

This soup was nice and cheesy and full of flavor.  I loved the shredded carrots in this soup.  It was too hard for the kids to avoid them so they ate them up.  I also put the onion and celery in my mini food processor to get them nice and fine.  This also gets the kids to eat them, too small to avoid or even notice.

This soup was loved by the whole family.  I originally served this soup with a delicious herbed oatmeal bread.
