Tips & Tricks
This soup can also be made in a slow cooker. You’ll first need to brown the beef in a pan, remove the excess juices, and place it into your slow cooker along with the oil, veggies, spices, and stock. Let it cook for up to 5-6 hours. Then add the cheddar and sour cream and cook for another hour. Serve warm with the crumbled bacon.
Store soup in the fridge for up to 2 days or in the freezer for 2-3 months.
