A slow cooker, Tex-Mex style cheeseburger soup.
You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make this soup. After the first spoonful, you will love your slow cooker… if you don’t already.
Hunt’s & RO*TEL make it easy to put a fresh, flavorful meal on the table, even on a busy weekday. Let me break it down for you.
I’m a huge fan of soups, especially ones that can be made in the slow cooker. We eat these types of meals at least twice a week. It just works for our family. They’re easy, convenient, and full of flavor.
For this meal, you definitely want to use a slow cooker liner. Never heard of them? I just saved you some scrubbing time at the sink. They are an absolute necessity, especially if you use your slow cooker as often as we do.
See all that cheesy goodness? That’s what I’m talking about. But it’s also a wholesome meal for your family. Plenty of diced tomatoes, ground beef, and stick-to-your-ribs bakery bread to serve with it. In my house, you simply cannot have soup without bread for dunking. It’s just not done.
I grabbed a loaf from the bakery area at Walmart, and it was a delicious way to round out this meal, without breaking the bank. I love that.
Be sure to be heavy-handed with the toppings. Honestly, I like about 50/50 toppings to soup. I mean look at those RO*TEL tomatoes & peppers, the shredded cheese, and chopped green onions…absolutely makes the soup.
And a tip for chopping green onions? Use kitchen scissors. That’s right!
You can chop/snip them right into the bowl. No cutting board, no hassle. Such a time saver.
It’s little hacks like these that help me to get a home-cooked meal on the table. We can use all the help we can get, right?! Life is busy.
Let’s all take a moment and enjoy a simply delicious, comfort meal.
