Cheeseburger Soup

I know the name sounds a little weird but give it a try. Every time we have soup my son asks "is it cheeseburger soup?" because it's his favorite. It has a slight cheesy taste and is a nice combination of creamy and brothy. I love the potatoes, carrots and celery and love the fact that my kids will eat them in this soup. Most of the ingredients are things you would have already have on hand and it can be made in about 30 minutes. We love to have this with a fruit or green salad and muffins or bread sticks.

Cheeseburger Soup

1 lb. hamburger
3/4 c. chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots
3/4 c. diced celery
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. parsley flakes
4 tbsp butter

1 can chicken broth
4 + cups diced potatoes

Add enough water to cover...
Simmer until potatoes are tender (about 15-25 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes)

Add: 1 1/2 c. milk (for extra creamy soup use evaporated milk or half and half)
1/2 c. sour cream
8-10 oz. cubed Velveeta Cheese (I always use the full 10)

Stir until warmed through and serve.
