I have shared a few cheeseburger "themed" soups lately, but this one is my favorite of the lot. I have been digging creamier soups and this one is so smooth! I love that it still has traditional soup goodies like carrot, onion, and celery. Plus it also has potatoes and ground beef....and CHEESE. It's like a whole cheeseburger meal in a soup.
