This is my version of cheeseburger soup that is served in restaurants. Its my husband's favorite kind of soup so I came up with my own version just for him. He loves the addition of "fries" and has been known to squirt a little ketchup in his bowl too. It's hearty and delicious even if you don't add the ketchup.
