Dear Crockpot Maraconi Cheeseburger Soup,
I'm writing you today to tell you that you were simply the best soup that I've had all year. Yes, we all know that I am embroiled in a tumultuous life-long love affair with my Classic Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup, but I can only stir a pot of that so many times before my significant other gets bored with it. Just when I thought that I would never love another soup again, you came into my life and I am a happier woman for it.
You're meaty. You're cheesy. You're so hot, yet comforting and always there when I need you. Your starchy, decadent white carbs satiate the winter beast within me and the protein keeps me going all night long.
Fifty Shades of Crockpot Macaroni Cheeseburger Soup, anyone?
You guys, let's get serious now.
No, really. I rarely drop the D bomb ( or any other for that matter) on this website, but this soup was worthy of it. I have always had cheeseburger soup on my list to try but I've never committed.
Then I thought to myself, hey self, why don't you make that cheeseburger soup that you've been wanting…and why not throw some macaroni noodles in it?
My family almost fought like wolves over the leftovers. My daughter ate an entire bowl without complaint then asked for more.
My son was devastated that my husband and I had eaten the rest for lunch the next day. You could chock that up to the normal teenager hormones but that isn't the case here.
Let me assure you that this Crockpot Macaroni Cheeseburger Soup is worth fighting over. Worth getting devastated over when your parents eat it for lunch the next day and don't leave you any.
Worth filing for divorce when your husband eats the last damn bowl on you.
Ouch. There's that D word dropping again.
What I'm trying to tell you guys here is that everything I post here on The Kitchen Magpie is a great recipe. Good doesn't cut it; it has to be great, Worthy of you.
This recipe for Crockpot Macaroni Cheeseburger Soup??
Fantastic. Superb. I should have kept it for my next cookbook – and you might just see in there anyways – but I wanted you to be able to eat it all winter long because I love you.
It's cookbook worthy, but I had to get it to you. I would be a terrible online friend if I didn't.
Eat this soup. All winter long. If you don't eat red meat, make it with ground turkey because it will also rock your freaking socks. Don't substitute the Velveeta cheese. You NEED that cheese.
Trust Magpie. I rarely lead you astray.
Let me know in the comments below if you've made it!
Happy cooking babes!
Love you more than this soup,
- 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1 small white onion chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- 6 cups of strong chicken stock
- 1 cup of grated carrots
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
- 16 ounces of cubed Velveeta processed Cheese
- 1 1/2 cups to 2 cup of uncooked macaroni noodles or add cooked if your noodles tend to fall apart
Fry up the ground beef in a large skillet until mostly browned.
Add in the white onions and fry until translucent and soft.
Add the garlic and fry for a minute or two and by this time the ground beef will be fully browned.
Place in the bottom of a large crockpot.
Pour the chicken stock over the beef mixture and add the carrots and basil.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Half and hour before serving, add in the macaroni. Cook until soft. Alternatively, you can add in cooked macaroni after the next step.
Whisk in the milk and Velveeta. Stir until the cheese is melted throughout the soup completely.
Serve and enjoy!
