  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: chopped green onions, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, sour cream


  • For extra flavor, use lean ground beef or ground turkey.
  • Feel free to customize the soup with your favorite cheeseburger toppings, such as pickles, mustard, or ketchup.
  • If you prefer a thicker soup, you can add a cornstarch slurry (cornstarch mixed with water) to the soup towards the end of cooking.


  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, brown the ground beef over medium heat until cooked through. Drain any excess grease.
  2. Add the diced onion, garlic, carrots, and celery to the pot. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chicken broth, diced potatoes, and diced tomatoes. Bring the soup to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the milk and shredded cheddar cheese. Continue to cook until the cheese is melted and the soup is heated through.
  5. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot with your favorite toppings, such as chopped green onions, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, or sour cream.

Cheeseburger soup is a comforting and satisfying meal that brings together all the flavors of a classic cheeseburger in a warm and creamy soup. It’s perfect for chilly days when you’re craving something hearty and delicious.
