Next to Christmas, our favorite season is soup season. We have our crock pots and soup pots at the ready and plan to make the most of the cooler temps with recipes to warm our hearts. We think you’ll agree that this year has left us needing comfort food more than ever, and what’s more comforting than a hot bowl of hearty soup?

Be warned. The soup recipe we’re sharing today isn’t for the calorie conscious. But, if you’re looking for a flavorful soup packed with meat and veggies, this is it.

We took our favorite Hamburger Soup recipe and added three different kinds of cheeses. Yep…you read that right. THREE CHEESES! Although it’s arguable whether or not Velveeta is actually cheese, for the sake of this recipe we’re going to count it as a cheese. We’ve also added cream cheese and colby jack. The end result was a beef and veggie loaded soup with a rich cheesy broth. A little bit of this goes a long way and will warm you to the core. Serve topped with sour cream and croutons or alongside a fresh slice of homemade bread. You can’t go wrong no matter how you eat it!
