Cheeseburger Soup

Hey Foodie Friends,
I know it’s been a while since my last post. But in the aftermath of the holidays I have been sticking to the old favorites and haven’t been trying out anything new. That is until tonight. In an effort to get out of my recipie rutt but still make something easy and delicious I yet again turned to Pinterest and found a recipie for cheeseburger soup. I was slightly skeptical but I figured what the heck. It was so awesome!!!

I found the recipe here
