Cheeseburger Soup

When it becomes colder, I like to make soups. They are easy to make besides all the chopping. The other reason is all the vegetables I add to the soup. My son was watching me and even commented how many vegetables I was adding to this soup. Good thing he likes vegetables. I asked him if we should mention it to Dad and he agreed that we better not. The thing with this recipe is my husband asked me to make a cheeseburger soup recipe years ago. The recipes I found weren't what he wanted. When I saw this recipe, I knew this must be the one he would like. It is delicious! What a great meal. I did add a kohlrabi but it was because I had one on hand. My husband said the soup tasted better the next day. Good to know.
