It has interchangeable lids, so you can really maximize the versatility. This recipe right here can be made in either, using the Instant Pot feature on your Ninja Foodi device.

How Long Does Cheeseburger Soup Stay Good In Fridge 

You can store this in the fridge for 3-4 days. Just store it with a lid over the top so it is secure. Then heat the soup up as you go for that quick lunch or supper. 

Can You Freeze Cheeseburger Soup 

You can freeze cheeseburger soup, but one note is the potatoes will change in texture slightly once they get frozen. They will become a bit mushier in texture. Now, the flavor of the soup will remain, it will just have a slight texture change.

If you do freeze the soup place it in a freezer bag and remove as much air as you can, or place in a container that is airtight. Then freeze for 1-2 months. Thaw and reheat on the stove when ready to serve. 

How to Lighten Up Thickness of Cheeseburger Soup When Reheated 

If you find your soup got pretty thick sitting in the fridge or freezer, then add a little chicken stock or even milk to the soup and give it a good stir as you warm it up. This will help lessen the thickness. Do a little at a time to get the consistency you want.

Can I Use Ground Turkey to Replace Ground Beef In Cheeseburger Soup 

So if you are wanting to use ground turkey or chicken to replace the ground beef you are welcome to. It will adjust the flavor. As the ground beef is meant to give you that classic cheeseburger taste. If you need to add a tiny splash of oil to add some grease into the pot if your meat is seeming to stick.
