"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Cheeseburger Soup Tips

What can I substitute for the Velveeta and ground beef?

Any low melting-point cheeses, such as Swiss and cheddar, can be substituted for the Velveeta. Or for a kick, use pepper jack. If you’re looking to cut some fat from this soup, replace the ground beef with ground sirloin, round or turkey.
How do you store cheeseburger soup? Can I freeze it?

You can store soup by letting it cool completely and placing it in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Soups with starches and dairy (like cheeseburger soup) are not ideal for freezing. But these soups are!
Can I add bacon?

Yes, you can always add bacon. Top bowls with crumbled cooked bacon for a bacon-cheeseburger twist. Be sure to check out these other cheeseburger-inspired recipes.
