We had Cheeseburger Soup at a local restaurant, Backstreets, and I was trying to find a copycat for it, this was close. I used rotel in place of the tomatoes, celery, and onions. I also pureed half the can of rotel. I used 2% Milk and extra cheese. We really like this, I'll keep tweaking it to see if I can get it closer to theirs.
Sort of like eating a cheesburger with a spoon. Very tasty, easy and inexpensive to make. The ketchup and mustard give the soup a nice tanginess. I used fat free half and half instead of whlole milk. This was yummy. Thanx for posting.
