This hearty cheeseburger soup tasts just like your favorite burger, minus the bun! I topped mine with pickles and garlic croutons to add extra oompf.
Brown the ground beef over medium high heat in a large dutch oven until it's no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
Add the pressed garlic, stir and cook for about 1 minute until the garlic becomes fragrant. Add the onion, celery and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes until the onions become soft.
Season with kosher salt and pepper then sprinkle the beef mixture with the flour. Stir and cook for 2 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste.
*I prefer Chohula, but use your own favorite brand if you prefer. If you use Tabasco, decrease the amount to 1 teaspoon.
