Ingredients:

For the Soup:

  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken or beef broth
  • 4 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Sliced green onions or chives for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Brown the Beef:

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until it’s no longer pink. Break it into crumbles as it cooks. Once done, drain any excess fat.
  2. Add the chopped onion, carrot, celery, and minced garlic to the skillet with the beef. Sauté for a few minutes until the vegetables are tender.

Slow Cook the Soup: 3. In your slow cooker, combine the cooked beef and vegetable mixture with the diced potatoes and chicken or beef broth. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  1. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until the potatoes are tender.

Create the Creamy Base: 5. In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Stir in the all-purpose flour to create a roux, and cook for a few minutes until it’s lightly golden.

  1. Slowly add the whole milk to the roux, whisking constantly until it thickens and becomes smooth.
  2. Once the roux mixture is thickened, add it to the slow cooker, stirring to combine with the soup.
  3. Add shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, ketchup, and mustard to the slow cooker, stirring until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy and well mixed.

Serve and Garnish: 9. Ladle the Extra Creamy Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup into bowls.

  1. If desired, garnish each serving with sliced green onions or chives.

Cook’s Notes:

  • This soup is highly customizable. You can add your favorite cheeseburger toppings like pickles, bacon, or jalapeños for extra flavor.
  • If you prefer a smoother texture, use an immersion blender to blend the soup to your desired consistency.
