Cheeseburger Soup

Cheeseburger Soup

  • 1 lb. ground meat (or as much as you like)
  • 3/4 C. chopped onion
  • 3/4 C. sliced carrots
  • 3/4 C. diced celery
  • 4 C. diced potatoes (I use red-skinned potatoes & leave the skin on)
  • 3 C. chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 3 T. butter or margarine
  • 1/4 C. flour
  • 1-1/2 C. milk (I use fat-free)
  • 8 oz. Velveeta, cubed (I use 2%)

In a Dutch kettle, brown beef and vegetables until meat is brown and veggies are soft, about 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes, basil and parsley. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are very tender, about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan melt the butter. Add flour, cook and stir 3-5 minutes, until bubbly. Add slowly stirring constantly to blend. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir about 2 minutes, until thickened (normally it thickens much sooner than 2 minutes). Remove from heat and add cheese and milk. Stir until cheese melts. Yummy with salad and crusty bread. Enjoy!!!
