Extra Creamy Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup


Extra Creamy Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup

Sometimes, all our souls yearn for is a bowl brimming with a rich, creamy soup that not only warms our insides but also brings a gentle, comforting hug to our senses. While a classic chicken noodle soup offers a nostalgic embrace, today we embark on a journey to a realm of utter decadence and profound flavors: a lusciously indulgent slow cooker cheeseburger soup.

Oh, but this isn’t just any cheeseburger soup. We’ve revisited, refined, and elevated an old favorite, paying meticulous attention to one ingredient that dramatically alters the landscape of this dish.

An Ode to Smoothness: Velveeta

In our previous version, cheddar was the star. But this time, we sought an impeccably smooth, seamless base, leading us to opt for the somewhat debated, Velveeta cheese. Its inclusion promises a broth that’s undeniably smooth and devoid of stringy cheese bits or segregating milk fats. If Velveeta isn’t your favorite, by all means, choose a cheese that makes your heart sing – though we whisper the secret: Velveeta does spellbinding wonders for the soup’s consistency.

Achieving Thickness with a Roux

Alongside Velveeta, a crafted roux introduces the desired thickness that elevates this soup from delightful to divine. This meld of butter, flour, and milk is introduced towards the end, and is unequivocally non-negotiable for achieving that irresistible yumminess.

With cheese and beef as our heroes, and a supportive cast of carrots, celery, and onion, what unfolds is a symphony of depth and rounded flavor that culminates in a soul-soothing culinary masterpiece.
