Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup | www.tasteandtellblog.com
First of all, thank you so much for all of your comments yesterday. I’ve always believed in the goodness of mankind, and that was all reaffirmed yesterday. Thank you so much for all of your support and kind words!!

And now – to the last of the slow cooker recipes using Progresso’s new Recipe Starters. I’m going back to a soup today. For some reason, I just really love soups made in the slow cooker. This soup is made with the Creamy Three Cheese Recipe Starter, which I think is probably my favorite of the starters – simply because I think it’s probably the most versatile.  (and unrelated – for some reason, I can never spell versatile correctly the first time around.  Thank goodness for spell check!)  I am a cheese lover, and anything that adds some great cheesy flavor is a winner in my book!

I’m a huge cheeseburger fan, but I don’t think that I have ever tried to make a cheeseburger soup before.  It’s been on my list forever, and this was the perfect excuse to try one.  And I’m telling you – cheeseburger soup is going to be a regular in our house.  I loved all of the cheeseburger flavors, all in a comforting bowl of soup.  And although it seems a little bit weird, topping the whole thing with some chopped pickles, mustard and ketchup really brought the whole thing together.

This is another one to add to your slow-cooker list!!

  2. My husband will LOVE this!

  3. Marie says:

    I’m printing this one out for my go to on a damp, cold fall/winter weekend that I know is right around the corner. Sounds yummy!

  4. Youuuuu are kidding me. I’m gonna freak OUT on this.

  5. I was at Target yesterday and I saw these recipe starters and thought of your great recipes you are sharing with these. I picked up the Fire Roasted Tomato starter to use with your pot roast, now I’ll have to go back and get this one because this soup is calling my name!

  6. Joanne says:

    I can definitely think of a LOT of uses for that three cheese starter but this one sounds extra excellent!

  7. Kristy says:

    Cheeseburger soup? How fun! This will be great when the weather cools off. Perfect Sunday dinner for me! 🙂

  8. What a great idea and I love that it’s made in the slow-cooker!! Pinning!

  9. I simply can’t get over the fact that you topped this off with pickles. Genius!

  10. Cassie says:

    Oh goodness, my husband would just adore this. These flavors make such a fun soup!

  11. carrian says:

    How’d I miss this?!! You’re a genius with mixing things up. I tell you what. GENIUS!

  12. I’ve had a Cheeseburger soup recipe pinned for.like.forever too! I seriously need to make it soon. Good thing soup season is fast approaching!

  13. Jennifer says:

    Would this be ok to cook all day? It would be nice to be able to make this during the week instead of having to save it for a weekend, but I don’t want to come home to something that is inedible due to being overcooked! Sounds delicious!

    • Deborah says:

      @Jennifer, I’m not a huge fan of the texture of meat when it’s been in the slow cooker for a really long time, but to some people, it doesn’t matter. I would guess that it would be fine all day as long as that texture doesn’t bother you, but I haven’t tried it. If you do, let me know what you think!

  14. The best soup I have made in a long time! Wonderful flavors!

  15. Kristine says:

    All Cheeseburger fans must make this soup! This is delicious! I made this on the stove top (didn’t plan ahead) and it has great flavor in a short time. It even tasted great before I added the shredded cheese. Of course I went ahead and added the cheese! I am looking forward to trying your other Progresso recipes. My family has enjoyed ALL of your recipes that we have prepared here at home. We are big fans! Thanks.

    do you think beef broth would taste okay? i forgot to grab chicken broth when i was getting the other ingredients.. but i have some beef broth leftover from a different recipe.. and also im adding mushrooms and corn.. i cant use the onion because my boyfriend hates them.. ill let you know how it turns out.. thanks for the recipe : )

  17. Lyssa says:

    it turned out great.. it just wasnt quite salty enough.. so i just added more cheese and a pinch of salt and it tasted awesome.. especially with some biscuits on the side.. my boyfriend doesnt usually like soup and he ate his entire bowl.. so thats saying something.. haha

  18. Lyssa says:

    oh and i also sauteed the mushrooms a little bit in some garlic, garlic salt and olive oil before i added them to the crockpot just to give them a bit more flavor

  19. Amy says:

    I’m going to try this tonight with vegetarian “ground beef” and veggie broth, I hope it turns out! It sounds so good!

  20. Amy says:

    Ok, I made it vegetarian-style; it’s so good!

  21. Sarina says:

    I really want to make this but I don’t think Progresso is available in Australia (I certainly haven’t been able to find it). Any thoughts on what I could use instead?

    • Deborah says:

      Sarina, I’m not sure there would be a suitable replacement, since the mix is such a big part of the recipe. But I’m guessing you should be able to find a completely from scratch version of Cheeseburger Soup online. Good luck!
