Ya'll, I'm loving this Skinny Cheeseburger Soup! It's perfect for any evening, just pop the ingredients in the slow cooker and you'll have dinner ready in no time.
I really didn't expect to like this recipe all that much (give me chicken over beef any day), but this was really just delicious. I tweaked it a bit using what I had in my pantry, and was oh-so-pleased with the results.

You could easily substitute regular cheddar cheese if that's what you have in the pantry, but I did purchase the (expensive!) fat free cheese to keep the calories down. Let me know what you think if you try it out for dinner too!
