Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

A new family favorite:

In a 3-qt saucepan, brown 1/2 pound beef; drain and set aside.  In the same saucepan, saute 3/4 cup chopped onion, 3/4 cup shredded carrot, 3/4 cup diced celery, 1 teaspoon dried basil, and 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes.  Add 1 tablespoon butter to saute in.  Saute until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.

Add 3 cups chicken broth, 4 cups diced peeled potatoes, and the drained beef from earlier.  Bring to a boil.   Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes.  

Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of butter.  Add 1/4 cup flour; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes (till bubbly).  Add this to the soup once it has simmered.  Bring soup to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Reduce heat on soup to low.  Add 8 ounces of cubed Velveeta cheese, 1 1/2 cup milk, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of pepper.  Cook and stir until cheese melts.

Remove the soup from the heat, blend in 1/4 cup sour cream, and you’re ready to go!

Very delicious, also very filling, makes a lot of food.  Enjoy!
