A dear friend shared this recipe with me. Every time I serve it, I'm met with recipe requests. Even my son-in-law, who's a picky eater, can't get enough of this soup! - Norma Rowe, Winfield, Kansas

  1. In a soup kettle or Dutch oven, cook beef, onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. Add potatoes and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add the corn, soups and tomatoes; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Stir in cream; heat through but do not boil. Yield: 14-16 servings (3-3/4 quarts).
To cut down on the spiciness of Zesty Cheeseburger Soup, use a 14-1/2 ounce can of plain diced tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes and green chilies.

"Best soup ever! I have added veggies to make a more complete meal: carrots, celery, mushrooms, zucchini. And substituted 1 pound of ground turkey for 1 pound of ground beef. Makes enough for a army, or a house full of teenagers."
