Hearty, wholesome, and family-friendly, these ground beef soup recipes are insanely good.
Better yet, they’re inexpensive and come together in a snap!
Easy Soups with Ground Beef
There’s just something about hot, hearty soup on a cool evening that really does it for me.
And while I enjoy tender beef chuck or juicy chicken, I don’t always have the time to cook all that meat.
Luckily, these ground beef soup recipes don’t need hours on the stove. So you can have a family dinner on the table in no time at all.
Requiring only 10 minutes of prep time and another 25 to cook, it doesn’t get much simpler than easy hamburger soup.
It’s dinner for the whole family in a little over half an hour.
It’s also incredibly yummy, with succulent chunks of ground beef, tons of mixed veggies, and a garlicky tomato-based broth that’s simply delightful.
You can’t go wrong with this one.
This herb-flavored soup is a lot like the hamburger soup above, only it takes about 10 minutes longer to make and includes far more veggies.
Thanks to the Italian seasoning, it tastes a bit like minestrone. But the beef adds a rich depth of flavor that you can’t get from any vegetable-only soup.
Thick, creamy, and unbelievably cheesy, ground beef soup recipe is always a hit – especially with the kids.
There are plenty of herbs and veggies, and there’s the half-pound of ground beef, of course, but it’s really all about the cheese in this one.
If you enjoy soup with lots of chunky goodies in it, you’ll love taco soup.
First of all, it’s insanely easy to make because you can toss everything in the Crockpot and let it do its thing.
Additionally, there’s just so much going on in that single pot: pinto beans, ground beef, kidney beans, corn, tomatoes, chiles, and more!
Plus, the combination of taco seasoning and ranch seasoning gives it a phenomenal flavor.
Chili is more of a stew, I know. But I had to include this meaty recipe!
You can make it with only six ingredients (five if you’re not a beans-in-your-chili kind of person) and just 25 minutes.
Despite the ease with which you can make it, you could definitely enter it into any chili challenge around and have a real shot at winning.
If stuffed peppers are your thing, then you’ll enjoy this soup, which is basically a deconstructed tray of stuffed peppers – peppers, beef, rice, and all!
Remember to de-seed the peppers if you’re not a big fan of spicy soups.
With only 10 ingredients and 35 minutes to spare, you can have this family favorite on the table and ready to serve.
It’s beefy and full of veggies.
Plus, the teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce gives it a little kick of flavor so good, you actually won’t mind letting it linger on your tongue a while.
I mentioned the “deconstructed stuffed peppers” above, but now, let’s take a look at what deconstructed cabbage rolls would look like in soup form.
This cabbage roll soup takes 45 minutes to make and uses just a hair over 10 ingredients, and that includes salt, pepper, sugar, and oil.
If you’re not a huge fan of cabbage, don’t let that stop you from trying it.
9. Lasagna Soup
Lasagna soup, on the other hand, has everything that makes lasagna special: ground beef, tomatoes and tomato paste, a ton of herbs and spices, three types of cheese, and lasagna noodles.
If you’d add it to your lasagna, you’ll add it to this soup. It’s lasagna, only in soup form.
If your Italian meal of choice involves meatballs instead of lasagna, give this one a try.
With tender pasta, an almost saucy broth, and fat, succulent meatballs, it’s hard not to love it.
As you can see from the ingredients list, it takes quite a few things to pull together, but most of them are simple kitchen staples, and the total cook time is less than an hour.
11. Beef Barley Soup
If you’re looking for something that’s filling that’ll remind you of your childhood days, beef barley soup could be just the thing.
It’s a zesty, tomato-based soup with beef, barley, Worcestershire sauce, plenty of herbs and veggies, and lots of chunky little bits to satisfy you.
It’s comforting and delectable.
This thick soup combines two of every hot-blooded American’s favorites: beef and beans.
It takes about 6 hours to make, but your slow cooker does most of the work for you.
And don’t worry, there are plenty of vegetables in the soup, as well. It’s a well-rounded meat-n-veggie dish that tastes spectacular on a cold winter day.
This hearty Italian vegetable soup is another good choice if you’re looking for something that sticks to your ribs.
It’s so thick and chunky that it’s almost a stew, and it’s really good for you.
Packed with Italian spices and overflowing with meat, onions, carrots, cabbage, and more, one bowl of this is enough to fill even the emptiest of stomachs.
Here’s another excellent option for those of us who love comforting, down-home cooking. It’s a simple soup made with beef, veggies, and noodles.
And its simplicity is what makes it so tantalizingly good. It smells great, looks fantastic, and tastes even better.
Here’s another thick, creamy option for the cheese lovers in your life.
It features juicy meatballs, tender chunks of carrots and potatoes, and two different kinds of cheese.
It’s perfect for serving with big slices of crusty bread and maybe even a crisp green side salad.
Beef enchilada soup is ideal for anyone looking for something with a little South of the Border flair.
It’s a simple 30-minute soup that requires fewer than 10 ingredients (minus toppings).
Load it up with tortilla strips, shredded cheese, chiles, chives, sour cream, or even a dollop of guacamole or salsa for an especially tasty treat.
This soup is delicious, and it’s both creamy and chunky, light, and filling.
It’ll tantalize your tastebuds but won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed or weighed down after eating it.
The potatoes and ground beef complement each other nicely, and because it’s chicken broth-based (instead of tomato-based), it’s easier on the stomach for those prone to indigestion.
Of all the ground beef soup recipes on this list, I think this is my favorite.
This soup combines three Mexican staples – corn, rice, and beans. Then you’ll add ground beef, onions, tomatoes, and more for an unforgettable dish.
It takes an hour to make, but it’s relatively simple to pull together, and it’ll keep you full for hours.
As long as you like lentils (and aren’t a vegetarian), you’ll appreciate this beef and lentil soup.
However, to ensure you make it perfect, you’ll have to get that spice mixture right.
You can pretty much adjust the soup and toppings portions of the recipe any way you like, but you’ll want to keep the spices spot-on.
This rich and creamy tomato-based soup is so thick, you could spoon it on bread and serve it like bruschetta.
Of course, that makes it the perfect soup to eat from a bread bowl!
Luckily, if you don’t have a bread bowl handy (and don’t want to take the time to make one), it tastes just as incredible on its own.
