How to Make Cheeseburger and Shells Soup
Making the Cheeseburger Macaroni Soup is so easy and it only requires one pan! To get started you’ll want to brown your ground beef, onions and garlic in a pan until your meat is cooked completely.
Once the meat is browned then go ahead and strain the fat and add it back into the same pan or start with a clean pan, it’s up to you but I tend to be lazy and I like to use one pan so I just start with a stock pot from the begining.
In a large stock pot add in the Ground Beef, Chicken Broth, Carrots, Seasonings. Once your liquid comes to a boil you can reduce the heat and simmer for about 20-30 minutes. Add in your noodles at this point and cook another 10-15 minutes!
Once your noodles have cooked and they are fork tender, stir in your Velveeta Cheese. I often get asked if you can make this soup using something other than Velveeta and I have never had much luck using another type of cheese in this soup because it doesn’t melt as well and ends up being stringy rather than smooth.
Another great way to serve this recipe is over Tortilla Chips! It’s also delicious topped with Lettuce and Tomato like a real Hamburger!
