Substitutions And Additions
VEGETABLES: You can add in or take out vegetables as you like for this creamy cheesy soup recipe.
Feel free to remove the onions or celery if you don’t care for them. Green beans and diced tomatoes are two vegetables I like to add to this soup.
CHEESE: You can add any type of shredded cheese to your soup. Colby jack, mozzarella, swiss, pepper jack, or Monterey jack are some of my go-tos.
Any cheese you like on a cheeseburger would be delicious in this soup.
MILK: I recommend using 2% milk for this creamy soup recipe. However, you could also use low-fat or whole milk as well.
SOUR CREAM: It is best to use full-fat sour cream for this soup, as it gives it the most creamy consistency.
How To Make Potato Cheeseburger Soup
STEP ONE: In a large frying pan, thoroughly cook ground beef. Drain excess grease and set aside for now.
You’ll definitely want to drain the excess grease off the ground beef after cooking. You can make this step easier by using lean ground beef.
STEP TWO: In a large 5-quart pot with one tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat, sauté diced onion, carrots, and diced celery with the Italian seasoning, oregano, salt, and pepper until the onions have softened, about two to three minutes.
STEP THREE: Add the beef, potatoes, and chicken broth to the pot.
Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot with a lid, and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
STEP FOUR: In a separate small frying pan, melt the remaining three tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat and stir in the flour until it starts to bubble.
Then add this mixture to the soup, stirring well to mix.
STEP FIVE: Stir in the cheese until fully melted.
STEP SIX: Add milk and bring the soup back to a simmer. Then stir in the sour cream until well mixed.
STEP SEVEN: Remove from heat and serve hot.
