How about some warm and comforting macaroni and cheese but the surprise is it’s soup!

THIS SOUP EATS LIKE A MEAL!!

Is there anyone who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese?

 You’d probably have to go far and wide to find anyone who doesn’t.

There’s many variation on the classic casserole, but I wanted to see how it worked as a soup. And I found it works amazingly well.

Another thing I did was introduce beef elements using beef stock and tiny meatballs. This made the soup more hearty and into a complete meal.

This one really sticks to your ribs!

MAKE IT EVEN QUICKER

I used some small cocktail meatballs I had in the freezer. But if you don’t have any of those stashed away and don’t want to be bothered making any specially for this, simply substitute browned and drained ground beef for the tiny meatballs.

This is a great idea if your making this during the week when your short on time and don’t have those little meatballs handy. And it’s just as yummy.

And of course if your not a beef person feel free to substitute it with chicken.

GET FANCIER WITH THE CHEESE

 My recipe is pretty basic. So is the substitution I gave in the above section, but this can be dressed up even more!

I used Velveeta as the cheese because I had a hunk I wanted to use up. However, Velveeta doesn’t separate and is very smooth so the soup will be velvety in texture.

Because Velveeta doesn’t separate once melted, any leftover soup will reheat and still be velvety. You can substitute shredded real cheddar cheese, but bear in mind, the soup will separate when reheated. However, it will still taste great.

In addition to the basic cheese(s) try adding a bit of Parmesan, Asiago or even bleu cheese into the mix.

Just a small amount will do you here as those cheeses are rather powerful tasting. I’d suggest just a tablespoon or two.

Caldo de Res – Mexican Beef Soup Recipe with Stove top – Slow Cooker – Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Instructions from https://whatscookingamerica.net/

Caldo de Res is a traditional beef and vegetable soup loved in the countries of Mexico and Guatemala.

To prepare a pot of this comforting soup, the beef shanks (with the bones) are simmered over the stove until the meat is tender and results in an aromatic broth.

The beef and bones are removed from the broth, then large chunks of vegetables such as ears of corn, potatoes, carrots, cabbage and squash are added and cooked until softened.

Beef chunks are added back in before serving. The soup itself is not spicy, but if an individual wants to add heat to their bowl of soup, a spicy salsa or chopped peppers can be added in as part of the garnishment along with cilantro, chopped onions, sliced radishes, avocado slices and a squeeze of lime.

This is a traditional one pot soup to enjoy during the weekends for a hearty meal.
