Tips on how to make the Best Cheeseburger Soup
- Serve it in a sour dough bread bowl.
- Be sure to keep an eye on it after you add the milk and flour mixture because it can thicken up really fast. If this happens, add a little water to thin it out.
- Feel free to add more cheese. You can add an additional 4oz of velveeta or another 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
- Make it a chowder by decreasing the water to 2.5 cups.
- Loosen up the soup by adding more water. Pour in 1/2 cups at a time.
