You’ll need to cook your ground beef, chop your veggies and cook them until they’re somewhat softened, then add your broth, milk and potatoes and cook until your potatoes are tender and until the soup is smooth and creamy. In the final minutes you’ll add your condiments and cheese and continue to heat until the cheese is melted.

A Few Cook’s Notes for Cheeseburger Soup
I used Velveeta cheese for this recipe, but you could use cheddar, colby or monterey jack cheese.
I love to top our soup with some shredded cheese, chopped pickles and chopped tomatoes. I also like to serve our soup with some french fries for dipping.
