How to Make Homemade Cheeseburger Soup
Cozy up on a cold night with some delicious cheeseburger soup! The flavors are amazing when they simmer in the pot.
It’s very basic ingredients that work so well together.
- 1 pound ground beef
- ½ cup chopped onion
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 4 cups diced potatoes
- 4 cups cheddar cheese
- 1 Tbsp corn starch
- 1 ½ Tbsp dried parsley
- In a medium sized skillet, combine the ground beef, onion, paprika, and garlic powder. Use a spatula to break apart the ground beef and cook until it is browned and fully cooked. Set aside.
- Dump the diced potatoes into a large pot and cover with the chicken broth. Cook the potatoes on medium high heat for 10 minutes or until the chicken broth is bubbling.
- Add the cheddar cheese and stir the broth mixture constantly until the cheese is completely melted.
- Stir in the ground beef mixture, corn starch, and dried parsley until the ground beef is evenly distributed in the soup.
- Continue stirring the soup until it begins to bubble.
- Remove from the burner, top with a sprinkle of parsley, serve, and enjoy!
• You can store this soup in the fridge for up to five days. You can reheat this soup on the stovetop by adding ¼ – ½ cup of water and stirring the soup consistently until it begins to bubble.
• You can use mild, medium, or sharp cheddar cheese in this recipe depending on your sharpness preference.
• I like to use lean ground beef in this recipe, but any ground beef will work just fine.
• Smoked paprika adds just a hint of smokiness to this recipe, adding a great undertone to the savory cheddar cheese.
