I use sharp cheddar cheese because I like the taste but any cheddar is good.

Because I commute 1 hour each way to work, I simplify this recipe. I also use more ground beef, 1#, I buy the cubed hash browned potatoes in the freezer section, along with the frozen diced onions. I use whole milk, and make this recipe as stated. I shave lots of time from assemblage with the 'easy' ingredients. Very hearty, creamy, filling on a cold winter's night. My family loves this, we have been making it for about 5 years now, I was surprised to find it on this site. To thicken this use potato flakes, it works great! The potato flakes make it a richer, thicker soup with substance.

This recipe was okay (as it was written)...I am only giving it 3 stars because as it is written, I do not love it. But after changes were made it was a pretty good cold day soup. I did not use the celery or carrots, that is not on a cheeseburger. I used beef broth instead of chicken broth and the second time I made it I used velvetta instead of cheddar. Cheddar does not get that creamy when melted. I am going to try a pasta in it next time instead of the potatoes. All in all, good basis for a very filling soup.

I was frantically searching for a similar recipe featured in one of the first editions of Taste of Home. It's my husband's favorite, and I lost the recipe! I couldn't get it quite right until this one! I also add one seeded, minced jalapeno, crumbled bacon, and some cayanne to the adult's portions. He thinks I found the original recipe, but this one's even better!!
