Best Cheeseburger Soup
Cheeseburger Soup is filled with ground beef, lots of crunchy veggies, and cheddar cheese. We have tried many variations of this recipe, but this version is one of the best we know.
This meal is truly satisfying, with beefy and cheesy flavor, and tender potatoes in every bite. On top, it is very easy to make, and ready in less than one hour. Whether you are entertaining for the Super Bowl, serving a larger crowd, or simply craving for a cheeseburger, this soup is the perfect match.
For deeper and more pronounced flavor, we use cheddar cheese and Velveeta cheese. Also, to thicken it up, a bit of flour is used. If you prefer a thinner version, then use less flour and more broth. Once you try it, it will quickly become your favorite one!

- We love using a mix of cheddar cheese and Velveeta due to its rich and sharp taste. If you prefer to not use processed cheese, you can replace the Velveeta with more cheddar cheese, however, the texture of the soup will be thinner and less cheesy.
- If you love bacon, add some to the dish.
- Sour cream and heavy cream make the soup creamier. However, you can substitute with plain whole milk yogurt or even cream cheese.
- Similarly, the chicken broth can be substituted with beef broth or even vegetable broth.
- To prevent it from curdling, remove from the heat before adding sour cream.
