  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large carrot, sliced into thin coins
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 celery sticks, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon sweet red paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 package (8-ounces) cream cheese, softened and cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups low sodium beef broth or chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish, optional
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  • Heat olive oil in a dutch oven or stock pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions, carrots, green pepper, celery sticks, and garlic; cook for 3 minutes, occasionally stirring.
  • Add beef; season with basil, paprika, oregano, salt, and fresh ground pepper.
  • Continue to cook for 5 minutes, or until browned. Don’t break up the ground meat too much; the chunkier texture of the ground beef in the soup will add more to that taste and texture of a cheeseburger.
  • Stir in tomato paste.
  • Add cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese; stir until cheese is completely melted.
  • Stir in the broth and milk; bring mixture to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly.
  • Sprinkle with freshly shredded cheese.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.


  • NOTE for Freestyle Points: Lower points down to 7 by using fat free cheddar, ground turkey meat, and low fat cream cheese.
