I got this recipe from a friend after seeing it on Food Network's, Diners, Drive-in & Dives. It's strange, but so very tasty. It really does taste like a cheeseburger.

  • 2 lb
    lean ground beef
  • 1-2 tsp
    hamburger seasoning
  • 1 large
    onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp
  • 32 oz
    chicken broth
  • 1/2 lb
    velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 jar(s)
    ragu cheddar cheese sauce

  • 3 medium

How To Make

  • 1
    In a skillet sprayed with cooking spray, brown the ground beef. Season with your choice of hamburger seasonings—I used McCormick Hamburger seasoning. Drain and set aside.
  • 2
    In a large soup pot, add 1 Tbs. butter, and diced onion. Allow the onion to sweat over medium heat. When the onions become translucent, you are ready to continue.
  • 3
    Add the chicken broth, the diced Velveeta, the Ragu cheese sauce, and the half & half. Allow the Velveeta to melt into the mixture.
  • 4
    Add the ground beef to the soup pot. Mix the flour and water to make a slurry, and add to the pot; bring to a boil, to thicken, then turn down to medium low heat.
  • 5
    Dice tomatoes and shred lettuce and then add to the mixture. Stir to combine and turn to low heat until ready to eat.
