When you are look­ing for an easy recipe that will be good for the adults and the kiddos.…look no fur­ther than this Slow Cook­er Cheese­burg­er Soup! Yum­my!

  1. Brown beef and onion in a large skil­let.  Place on a paper tow­el-lined plate to drain grease.
  2. Put 1 T. but­ter in the bot­tom of a 6-Quart slow cook­er and top with the car­rots, cel­ery, and pota­toes.
  3. Crum­ble beef and onion mix­ture over top.
  4. Top with can of Diced Toma­toes & Green Chilies. (Rotel)
  5. Add salt & pep­per and pour chick­en broth in the slow cook­er.
  6. Cov­er. Cook on LOW for 4 hours or until pota­toes are ten­der.
  7. Just before soup is done, melt remain­ing 3 T. but­ter in a pan over medi­um heat.
  8. Make a roux by whisk­ing flour into the melt­ed but­ter and cook for a few min­utes until gold­en in col­or and bub­bling.
  9. Whisk milk into the roux and cook on medi­um heat (con­tin­u­ous­ly whisk­ing) until ful­ly incor­po­rat­ed, about 2 min­utes.
  10. Pour mix­ture into the slow cook­er and stir to com­bine.
  11. Stir in cheese, sour cream and fresh pars­ley.
  12. Cov­er. Cook for an addi­tion­al 20 min­utes or until cheese is com­plete­ly melt­ed.
  13. To serve, top with crou­tons or a side of crusty french bread.

Update on 10/6/15: I’ve found that my fam­i­ly likes this more meaty so I increased the amount of ground beef from 1/2 lb. to 1 lb. in the recipe.

Option­al: If you like your soup a lit­tle thick­er, just add 1 to 2 T. corn starch whipped smooth in water and add to the soup! Serve with crack­ers, bread or topped with crou­tons for a tasty meal!

you sug­gest microwav­ing pota­toes ahead of time. can you give instruc­tions for that?


Hi! Could the pota­toes be sub­sti­tut­ed for some­thing else?


What serv­ing size was used for the nutr­tion­al infor­ma­tion. I’m on a diet and would like to make this. Thanks.

I make a super sim­ple ver­sion of this soup with just 5 ingre­di­ents — 1 qt broth, pota­toes, 1 onion (chopped), 1 lb browned ground beef and 4 cups grat­ed cheese. I cut the pota­toes in small chunks and cov­er with the broth. I don’t mea­sure the amount, just make sure they are cov­ered. Add the beef and onion — let it cook on low all day. When it’s done I smash part of the pota­toes with a mash­er (right in the slow cook­er) but leave it part­ly chunky since hub­by like it that way. I add the cheese and… Read more »


Hi Becky! I love the idea of the use of non processed sharp ched­dar! Do you think I could sub­sti­tute those pota­toes for some­thing else though?


Any sug­ges­tions for anoth­er cheese in this soup besides Vel­vetta? We are not big fans of it. Can I use any oth­er type of cheese and cut it in cubes or shred­ded cheese? Thanks!


I made this soup a month or so ago and I am not a fan of velvee­ta cheese either. I used shred­ded ched­dar cheese I believe 8 ounces. Although me and my fam­i­ly love cheese I put a lit­tle more then 8 ounces in…just because we love cheese. And it was deli­cious with reg­u­lar shred­ded cheese.


I make this alot, it is so good. I add bacon to mine to make it a Bacon Cheese­burg­er Soup.


Great, I’ll give that a go! Thanks so much!!


Love these kid friend­ly recipes!! Thank you!! I have three picky lit­tle boys so keep them com­ing!! 🙂


Excel­lent soup!! And so flex­i­ble to suit your own tastes. Thanks for this recipe. Win­ter hit with a vengeance this week­end, so it was per­fect for being snowed in.


I made this today and it was fan­tas­tic! I work full time and my daugh­ter had gym­nas­tics so I just put every­thing in the crock­pot except for the but­ter, sour cream, and cheese on low and it cooked all day. After gym­nas­tics I added the velvee­ta, sour cream and but­ter and mixed it around and it all melt­ed real­ly quick­ly. We paired it with crusty bread and it was won­der­ful! We also topped it with some bacon! My hus­band who nev­er eats soup even loved it!
