For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

First thing you’ll need is a cutting board to dice up a few things. Isn’t this one cute??!!

Made with my name on it and a great gift idea if you ask me (hello Mother’s Day and Christmas). With different designs to choose from and personalized for that special person in your life!

Mine has pictures of all of us cooking something…silly photos I love of each person.

Cheeseburger Soup Instant Pot

Chicken or beef broth – your choice, beef will make it a deeper color, I used chicken broth here

chicken broth
  • Heavy cream
  • Shredded cheese – I like sharp cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Cornstarch – to thicken the broth
  • Spices, salt and pepper to taste

You could add 1/2 cup sour cream at the end to make it creamier if you wanted too. 😉

How many calories are in cheeseburger soup?

Let’s start by saying this is not a “healthy” dinner. I mean everything in moderation right? I have nutritional info. listed below for this homemade soup recipe.

How long does cheeseburger soup last in the fridge?

Wait until it is room temperature before storing in airtight containers. Then reheat and consume within 4 days.

Whether you use your stovetop or your Instant Pot, you’ll want to cook your ground beef and diced onions together. I personally leave the little bit of grease that is left over in the pot. It adds flavor, but you can drain it.

Once that is done you’re going to add everything else except for the cheese and cook it for just 3 minutes on high pressure!!

  • If you’re using a pot on your stovetop you just want to simmer it on low with a top on until all the flavors are melded together.

Then remove from your heat, or do a quick release and either put a dollop of sour cream on top of each bowlful, or mix some into the whole batch. We loved this soup!!

That’s the beauty of cooking in a pressure cooker.

  • I used leftover bacon from the day before this time. If you don’t have that you can cook your diced bacon in with your ground beef and onions to really meld those flavors together!

Once it’s done you’re going to add most of your cheese. Stir until it melts which won’t take long.

Thicken the soup with a bit of cornstarch and you’re ready to top with a bit more cheese and green onions!

I haven’t made this in my slow cooker yet, but it would be similar to the stovetop method. You’d need to precook the meat first, throw everything else in and cook on low all day.

We love this recipe any way it’s cooked really.
