Bacon Cheeseburger Chowder

Cold winter days call for warm hearty soups!
My husband only considers soup a main dish when it is loaded and this one fits the bill perfectly. All the goodness of a bacon cheeseburger in a delicious chowder – soup will never be the same.

  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 (12 oz) package Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a large stockpot, cook beef, onion, and red pepper over medium heat until beef is no longer pink (about 6-8 minutes). Drain fat, then add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Stir in flour until blended.

  3. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
