Cheeseburger Soup

I have been missing blogging the last few weeks!  Like I said, I've been re-making lots of recipes instead of trying new ones, and I have missed it greatly :)  

It is my opinion that you can NEVER have too many good soups tucked away in your tried-and-true file.  Soups are so great for weeknights, meals for others, warming you up after a cold day, and are simply comfort foods at their finest.  Not to mention it is a fabulous way to get veggies in those kiddos that would otherwise refuse to eat a veggie otherwise!

This soup turned out super yummy, is definitely filling, and the next time I make this I want to eat it out of a bread bowl...YUM!

Cheeseburger Soup

1 pound ground beef 
¾ cup chopped onion
¾ cup shredded carrots
¾ cup diced celery
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
4 tablespoons butter, divided
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups peeled and diced potatoes
¼ cup all purpose flour
2 cups of Velveeta processed cheese cubed (I used 16 ounce)
1½ cups milk
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ to ½ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup sour cream

Brown the ground beef in 3 quart saucepan. Drain and set aside.

In the same saucepan add 1 T butter and add onion, shredded carrots, parsley flakes, basil and celery. Saute until tender.

Add the broth, potatoes and beef and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

In small skillet melt remaining butter (3 T) and add the flour. Cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to the soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
Stir in the cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat and blend in sour cream.
