Our weather finally took a dip to colder weather, but still only 20 below. It is supposed to get to -30 by Thursday, but that is in the middle of the night. While we have had an unusually warm winter, -20 is still cold and I crave soup.
I made soup and chicken wings for dinner Sunday while we watched football, soup for me and chicken wings because Dave doesn't think soup is dinner. But, I have to say that I got TWO compliments on the soup and he ate TWO bowls of soup so this was a total win! At one point he told me I could can the broth and sell it, high praise from a soup disinterested human!
So, here is my version of Cheeseburger Soup, I won't can it and sell it, but I do take donations if you are so inclined!
1 Tbsp. Avocado oil
1/2 cup onion, diced
3 cloves garlic
1 lb. ground beef
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 (14. oz) fire roasted-diced tomatoes
4 cups beef broth
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream
salt to taste
1 1/2 cups cheese, divided
diced dill pickle, optional but so unusually delicious
In a large pot, heat avocado oil and sauté onion until soft and translucent. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, add ground beef and cook until well browned, breaking up large clumps. Add mustard, tomatoes and beef broth, bring to a boil and reduce to low and simmer for 1 hour. Add heavy cream, sour cream and 1 cup of cheese, stir until cheese is melted and incorporated well. Taste and add salt, if needed.
Serve, top each bowl with a sprinkle of cheese and some dill pickle.
