Cheeseburger Soup

Tammy T


Soup is such a comfort food for me and I especially love a good meat and potatoe soup and this is a really good one for those times. Served with a good crusty bread, makes it a satisfying meal.

diced sweet red bell pepper
1/2 c

1Brown ground beef, onion, and celery in a large saucepan or stockpot; add a little olive oil if necessary.
2Add the diced red bell pepper and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the chicken broth, carrots, potatoes, parsley, and basil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
3In a saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat; stir in flour until smooth, about 30 seconds. Slowly stir in the half-and-half or milk. Stir in cheese. Continue cooking, stirring, until cheese is melted and the mixture is thick and begins to bubble. Stir the milk mixture into the soup mixture until well blended. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Heat thoroughly.
