  • Cheeseburger Soup by MrsMo

    My boys request this as soon as the weather turns cool. This calls for 1/2 lb ground beef, but I usually just go ahead and use a lb. This came from Taste of Home quite a few years ago.

    Cheeseburger Soup

    1/2 lb. ground beef
    3/4 cup chopped onion
    3/4 cup shredded carrots
    3/4 cup diced celery
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    1 teaspoon dried parsley
    3 cups chicken broth
    4 cups diced potatoes

    Brown beef, drain and set aside. Saute onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 to 2 Tablespoon butter in soup pot until tender. Add chicken broth, beef and potatoes. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

    In a small skillet, melt 3 Tablespoons butter, add 1/4 cup flour, cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to soup, bring to boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Reduce to low then add:
    2 cups cubed Velveeta
    1 1/2 cups milk
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat and blend in 1/4 cup sour cream.
