Reviews for Cheeseburger Soup
"Just okay. Too much cheese, and I even added plenty of extra broth."
"We aren't super fans of Velveeta so it wasn't our favorite recipe. Fun to try though"
"Very delicious and rich and creamy did a few changes just because worked with what i had but still a very awesome succulent soup 4 stars ??"
"Excellent!! The only change I made was substituted 8oz. Sharp cheddar cheese with 8oz Velveeta instead of all 16oz Velveeta. This one is a keeper."
"Delicious! I upped the broth since some thought it was too cheesy."
"Really loved this soup! Definitely appeals to our meat-and-potato eaters.I substituted cheddar and other cheeses we had on hand for the Velveeta and added it a bit at a time. Adding a bit of cream in with the milk gave it a nice, rich feel."
"This soup is absolutely delicious! My husband can't wait for me to make it again!"
"I didn't like this at all. Way to much cheese. I wish I would have followed my first thought of only adding half the cheese. I gave some to my neighbors and they too felt the same way."
