I was a bit disappointed in this recipe. I have several cheeseburger soups in my rotation and I assumed this would be just as good. The soup was a bit on the bland side. The sliced cheese didn't melt well, I would suggesting adding an equivalent amount of Velveeta. Plus the ingredients broke down but that may have be me keeping it in the crock pot on warm a bit longer. It wasn't completely bad. I just think there are better options out there.
