Cheesy Beef Enchilada Soup

Need an easy soup recipe for dinner this week? Cheesy Beef Enchilada Soup is quick and easy to make. It is cheesy and delicious. 

Cheesy Beef Enchilada Soup

One of my goals for 2020 is to share more of the recipes that I have taken pictures for, but have never shared with you. 

I have a folder full of recipe photos that I have yet to share because the photos are not great. The recipes are ones that we love, but for one reason or another the photos did not turn out great. 

Cheesy Beef Enchilada Soup Recipe

Most of the time it is because I am in a hurry when I take my photos. My recipes are the recipes that I make for our meals all the time.

This soup picture was taken at 6:30 on a busy weeknight. 6:30 in the winter means that it was dark outside and not the best lighting for photography.

It also means that by 6:30 my family is hungry and waiting for dinner.

As I am trying to get the best picture, they are patiently waiting for dinner, hoping that it doesn’t get cold by the time that I am done. 

Many of those photos end up in a folder on my computer waiting for me to take new photos. But I often don’t get around to retaking them.

Life happens and often when I go to retake the recipes it is again 6:30 at night and my family is ready for dinner…

Cheesy Beef Enchilada Soup

In 2020 I am going to change that. Great recipes with less than perfect photos will still get shared. Today is an example of that. 

We love this cheesy beef enchilada soup. Well, my dairy free daughter doesn’t eat it, but the rest of us love it. 

It is easy to make with basic ingredients. You can serve it as is or with tortilla chips on the side. It isn’t a pretty recipe and doesn’t have a pretty photo, but it is an easy and delicious dinner.

This recipe is based on my Copy Cat Chicken Enchilada Soup. If you love chicken soup be sure to give it a try.
