How to make instant pot cheeseburger soup:
First, set the Instant pot to browning and brown the ground beef. You want to also drain any excess grease.
Second, put the potatoes, onions, and carrots in the pressure cooker.
Next, add the beef broth and cream of mushroom soup. Pour this all over the vegetables.
Then sprinkle the seasonings and combine everything.
Finally, add the lid and set the pressure to high for 5 minutes. Next, do a quick release and take the lid off.
The last step is to add the shredded cheddar cheese and the cream cheese into the Instant pot.
Place the lid back on. Let this sit on low until the cheese is melted.
How long do you cook in the pressure cooker?
This meal is so quick and easy. After you brown the ground beef, everything cooks on high pressure for 5 minutes.
At the end, the cheese goes in and melts for 2 to 3 minutes.
The entire dish takes less than 15 minutes start to finish.
What to serve with cheeseburger soup?
- Serve with your favorite toppings. We topped ours with tomatoes, onions and cheddar cheese.
- Bread for dipping. Try Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks and easy homemade dinner rolls. You can also pick up bread from the bakery or even just toast some hamburger buns.
Can I substitute beef with other meats?
Yes, we have substituted ground turkey instead of beef and it was delicious. No one could tell the difference.
Other tasty ideas include ground chicken and ground sausage.
How to freeze:
- Cool the soup completely.
- Put the soup in freezer bags making sure to get any air out.
- Lay the bags flat in the freezer so they will freeze flat. This is how I try to freeze most of my freezer meals because they take up less space this way.
- Now you can reheat for a future or lazy evening. I like to reheat it in my slow cooker or on the stove top.
- You can also freeze cheeseburger soup in individual freezer safe containers for quick and easy lunch ideas.
How to thaw frozen cheeseburger soup
To thaw the cheeseburger soup, remove it from the freezer the night before serving and place in the refrigerator.
Or put the sealed soup bag in a large bowl or casserole dish filled with warm water, to thaw it faster.
Then reheat in the slow cooker, on the stove top, or in the microwave.

How to make Cheeseburger Soup on the Stove Top
You can also make this on the stove top. Follow the Instant pot directions but placing all the ingredients in a stock pot. Instead of pressure cooking, bring to a boil.
Cover with a lid and reduce heat. Simmer until the potatoes are soft.
Finally stir in the cheddar cheese and cream cheese until melted.
- Use a Lower fat meat. I like to use a lower fat ground beef, like 10 percent beause then in make sure your soup isn’t as greasy. If you do use a higher fat meat, make sure to drain all the grease off before adding in all the other ingredients.
- For a spicier soup, add some red pepper flakes.
- Browning the beef is important because it will lock in and elevate the flavors of the soup.
- This dish can be made with any ground meat: chicken, turkey, or pork will all work. The cooking time will remain the same if you use the same amount of ingredients.
- You can use frozen diced or shredded hash browns instead of the potatoes in this soup recipe. You will be surprised how delicious the hash browns are.
You will get all the flavors in the soup, without all the work of peeling and dicing potatoes.
