Cheeseburger Soup


This post may contain affiliate links.

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.

Thanks for the recipe. It looks really nummy! I also like the “vegetable slip in” idea. Good job for helping with the Susan Powell media blitz! Can’t wait to make the soup.

Thanks for posting this. I saw this recipe over at Dine and Dish and have been thinking about making it too. Glad to hear your family enjoyed it. My husband isn’t a “soup guy”, but I think he would really enjoy this one.
