A very rich soup to serve on a very cold night! I love this recipe passed to me by my good friend Tasha! I make this one when I have a lot of people to feed. You can let people fix it how they want to, chips or no chips. I like to add sour cream sometimes on top.

As soon as I read this recipe I knew it was a winner. My husband went right out and picked up what ingredients we didn t have. The soup is easy and delicious. We added an onion to the hamburger to brown out of habit. Read More

Plenty of positive reviews and I agree that this is a great easy recipe for a cold winter day. Just want folks to know I made it substituting 2 cups beef broth for the half & half and heavy cream and reduced the amount of Velveeta. It still turned out great! Read More

Wow - this was fantastic. My whole family loved it. I added onions and garlic to the ground beef while cooking. Put it all in the crock pot and let it cook all day. Also added some pepper flakes to give it a small kick. YUM! will make this again and again Read More

This soup was amazing!!! My family loved it!!! I didn't have a pint of heavy cream so I used 2 pints of half and half, I also only had about 4 oz. Of Velveeta so I used shredded Mexican 4 cheese blend along with the little bit of Velveeta. And instead of using ground beef I used shredded chicken breast. It was soooo good!!!! I will make this again and again!!! :-) Read More
