This easy Cheeseburger Soup is packed with flavor and ready in 30 minutes!
I was talking to a few ladies at church the other day and we happened to get on the topic of cooking (my favorite topic, by the way!). While swapping recipes, I learned about this Cheeseburger Soup. I’ve been obsessed with soup lately so I had to give it a try. This Cheeseburger Soup definitely lived up to its reputation! It’s basically everything you love about cheeseburgers in a bowl – and then some. This soup was really easy to make and it was ready in 30 minutes, which makes it a great easy weeknight meal. Here are a few tips to help you get this Cheeseburger Soup on the table in 30 minutes:
- Take the time to chop all of the veggies before you start cooking. You can place the potatoes in a bowl of cold water to keep them from turning brown.
- Get two pans going at once — brown the ground been in a large skillet and start sauteing the veggies in a large dutch oven.
- Cut potatoes into small cubes – they will cook faster.
This soup is very filling and was great re-heated the next day!
