I have already reviewed this soup as written but I have found that by adding some more veggies and meat and using a slow cooker I can make an exceptionally cheap, easy, nutritious meal that requires little of my time and is a good way to sneak veggies into my grandkids although it probably can no longer be called "cheeseburger soup" by the time ive made my modifications, I hope some others will find my additions useful to them. I start by sautéing one bag of frozen bell pepper/onion mix in a little oil until soft. I then add 1lb of lean ground beef and brown that. I pop it into a slow cooker with some diced potatoes and carrots, a can of chopped green chillies, a can of diced tomatoes and 2 cups of beef broth and cook on low for 6-8 hours. I add shredded 2% reduced fat sharp cheddar and cook on high for about 15 minutes to melt. I notice that many are using velveeta but for myself anything that is called "cheese food" is so altered it is just a chemical laden glop in the mix. That's just my opinion. For thickening I like to mash a few of the potatoes in the soup. After putting each serving in the bowl I top with a little more shredded cheese and a dollop of light sour cream. As a distance runner, this provides me with excellent nutrition that is easy on my wallet and my time.
