Warm up after a long day with this easy and delicious Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup, made with plenty of real food ingredients.
Hi everyone! It’s Ashlyn from Belle of the Kitchen, and I’m excited to be back here at Kenarry to share a brand new recipe with all of you – Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup. It’s pure winter time comfort food that your whole family will love.
This month Carrie and I are exchanging slow cooker soup recipes, just in time for the crisp fall weather. Carrie is over on my blog today sharing her recipe for Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup.
cheeseburger Soup Made With Whole Ingredients
Soup is one of my favorite ways to warm up when the weather gets cooler, and when I can make it in the slow cooker? Even better! I’ve spent some time tweaking this recipe to get it just right, mostly to include more real food ingredients.
I’ve tried a few different cheeseburger soups, but have always felt so funny adding in processed cheese with all of those good-for-you veggies. I feel like this soup has just as creamy and cheesy of a texture as any of the others, and it’s better for you!
Now my hubby is not much of a cook, unless it’s on the grill or the Big Green Egg. That man can smoke some delicious pulled pork, and that is a fact! Anything else though makes me worry about the kitchen getting lit on fire.
The day I prepared this Cheeseburger Soup, I had a friend’s event to attend, and I knew I would have to leave my hubby in charge of the final steps. They’re pretty easy and straightforward (i.e. stir together flour and milk, dump into crockpot, add cheese, cook 10 more minutes…) but I was still a little concerned.
When these situations have arisen in the past, he usually calls to ask me a couple of questions. So this time when I heard my phone ringing, I knew it was either the soup or the kids, since I had left him in charge of both! But it was a good phone call, just letting me know that he and the kids were loving the soup! All was well. 🙂
All that to say – if my husband can make it without any issues, anyone can!

Sounds amazing. I bet the cream cheese just takes this soup over the top.
I bet it does! I can’t wait to try it myself. Everything Ashlyn makes looks amazing. Thanks, Stephanie!
This sounds really good! And I love that you’ve tweaked it to cut out some of the processed ingredients! Pinned!!
Thanks for stopping by and for pinning, Amy! Have a great weekend!
Hi, Carrie, Happy New Year! These look and sound delicious. i Will try them in this new year, this is ourcouponss.com, I can’t wait to make it for my patients.
I’m featuring this amazing recipe in my post in order to make it for my families, so I made this last night and my family loved it very much! Do you have the nutritional info?
wo wo wo !
Hi Jason! Glad to hear you liked the recipe and plan to make it for your family. I do not have the nutritional info. You can check with Ashlyn at Belle of the Kitchen who contributed this recipe to our site, though, and see if she can help – http://belleofthekitchen.com
Hi, I am going to give this a go. I do have a question though, how many fluid ounces or millilitres are in a can of beef broth? I am in Australia and will have to be a little creative with some of the ingredients
Great question, Rachael! There are 14.5 oz in a can of beef broth. Enjoy the Cheeseburger Soup! Let us know how it turns out.
followed directions perfectly. Didn’t care for the taste.
Thanks for trying the recipe. We’re so sorry you didn’t care for it.
This recipe looks great, want to try it! Only question, how many ounces total of beef broth is 2 cans. I usually buy the larger containers & just curious how many ounces this recipe calls for. Thanks!!
Hi Samantha, a typical can of beef broth is 14 ounces, so for two cans you’d need 28 ounces or 3 1/2 cups of beef broth. I hope that helps! Enjoy the Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup. I made Ashlyn’s recipe last winter – it’s delicious! 🙂

Have you ever tried freezing the soup? Or do you think you could freeze it?
That’s a great question, Tessa! I freeze soups all the time, but haven’t tried it with this recipe. I’ll ask Ashlyn who created this recipe and see what she thinks.
Hi Tessa! I have never tried freezing this soup before, but I don’t see why you couldn’t. The only issue I could see arising could be from the cream cheese separating a bit when you reheat it. If you reheat it slowly though, I think it should be ok. Hope you enjoy the soup!! 🙂
This looks delicious! How many would you say this serves? Thanks!
Heather, I’d say it makes 8-10 servings. Hope you enjoy it!
SOOOOOO, OK, we totally prepped this recipe and got it in the crock-pot, left the house and came home to find that the crock-pot never got turned on!!!!! ARRRGH!!! SO we put the soup in a pot, placed it on the stove, brought it to a boil for about 10 minutes to cook the potatoes, and then let it simmer for 20 minutes. OH MY STARS–this was SOOOO GOOD!!!!! My daughter Sadiebug licked her bowl clean, and getting her to eat is usually a chore unless chocolate or ice cream are involved. Totally recommend this one – it’s even fantastic with scoop shaped corn chips–it would make an excellent dip!!!!!
Jessica, I can’t even imagine how disappointed you were when you came home to find the crockpot wasn’t even on. I’m glad you were able to save the soup though and that it worked to prepare it on the stove instead. I love that your daughter licked her bowl clean. Too cute! Thanks for letting us know how much you enjoyed the recipe.
I am wondering how many carbs is in this soup?? Looks so very good!
Th!ank you for your help
Great question, JoAnn! Unfortunately we’re not registered dietitions or nutritionists to answer it. I’d recommend finding an online carb calculator and using that to make a guesstimate based on the ingredients in the recipe and your serving size.
This is delicious! I tried to make it a little healthier by using low sodium beef broth, 1% milk, 2% cheddar cheese, whole grain flour, light cream cheese, and ground turkey. It was so so creamy and yummy. Thanks for the recipe!!!
Oh yay! Thank you for letting us know, Chelsea! It’s good to know the recipe turned out delicious with your healthier substitutions in case other people want to try it that way too. Have a great week!
Please post nutritional values, thanks.
Thank you for reaching out to us. That’s a great question. Unfortunately I’m not a registered dietitian or nutritionist, so I don’t feel qualified to determine the nutritional value for this recipe. If you google “nutritional value calculator” you might be able to find a tool that can assist you.
