This keto cheeseburger soup is made in a crockpot. Who doesn’t love a set-it and forget-it recipe? This soup combines ground beef, onions, bell peppers, garlic, and kale, in a rich bone broth. After simmering those flavors together all day I added heavy cream, cream cheese, and sharp cheddar to create a cheesy cream soup. Topped with pickles, onions, mustard, and primal kitchen’s ketchup this is a cheeseburger in a bowl!

What You Will Need
Let’s Make Soup!
Start by frying up the hamburger in a skillet. At this point, I season the meat with either a steak seasoning blend or hamburger seasoning. Use whatever you would season your burger with if you were setting out to make cheeseburgers. Once the meat is cooked through you can transfer it to the crockpot where it will join all of your other soup goodies!
Chop your veg. I add the onions, garlic, and bell peppers to the hamburger and bone broth in the crock pot to simmer away. The kale can wait, as it does not need that long to get tender.
Add paprika and salt, pour the bone broth over everybody, and set the crockpot for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low depending on what your timeframe of convenience is.
Near the end, you can add the late-to-the-party guests (you know the ones. They ALWAYS show up late, and you want to be irritated, but somehow they seem to bring THE party with them). Stir in the kale, cream cheese, cheddar, and heavy cream, and let them cook for another 20 or thirty minutes. At this point, you are ready to garnish and chow!
The garnish is perhaps the most crucial part of this dish. I LOVE pickles, and I think that they MAKE this dish. I garnish with pickles, chopped onion, yellow mustard, and Primal Kitchen’s Ketchup. If you are like me, and you are committed to a low-carb lifestyle, but you are not ready to give up luxuries like ketchup, then this product will come in clutch!
