This cheeseburger soup is comforting, cheesy and delicious. It is the perfect meal for a cold fall or winter day. Serve with a crisp green salad and a crusty bread for the perfect meal. I doubled this recipe so we could have two days of delicious soup in a row. My family did not complain and the soup was just as tasty the second day as it was on the first. My husband is pretty sure this is the best soup he’s ever had.
Because the salt content can differ from chicken broth and cheese brands I didn’t add any extra to the recipe. Make sure to taste the soup and add salt and pepper to taste. Also, be careful not to boil the soup after adding the sour cream or else it will separate.
I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we did!
