Cheeseburger Soup

For some reason, I've always wanted to try a cheeseburger soup. I finally got around to it! It's a slow cooker recipe too, which is even better! And it's a slow cooker recipe where you actually prep more and it only needs to cook in the slow cooker for about 2 hours!

Cheeseburger Soup-adapted from WeightWatchers
Total Time: 2 hours
Serves 8

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 cup low-fat evaporated milk
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Tortilla chips, for serving
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Saute garlic, onion and celery until tender, about 5 minutes. Place into a lightly greased 5-quart slow cooker.

In the same skillet, brown the ground beef. Pour off any grase and add to the slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine flour and 1/2 cup of broth; stir until lump-free. Pour flour mixture into same skillet; add remaining 2 1/2 cups of broth. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits in bottom of skillet, and pour into slow cooker; stir in evaporated milk, cheese, paprika, salt and pepper. Cover slow cooker and cook on low setting for 2 hours. Serve soup topped with crumbled chips.
