Cheeseburger Soup

January here has been really cold. What's better on a cold day than a bowl of soup? We have soup at least once a week during the winter. I thought I'd start sharing some of our family's favorite soup recipes. Cheeseburger Soup is a very easy soup to put together. You probably have the ingredients on hand already. It's a crow-pleaser with adults and kids.

Cheeseburger Soup

1 to 1 1/2 lb. ground beef
3 T. butter or oil
3/4 C. chopped onion
3/4 C. shredded carrots
3/4 C. diced celery
4 C. chicken broth
4 C. diced potatoes
1/4 C. flour
10-12 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 C. milk
1 1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 to 1 tsp. minced garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 to 1/2 C. sour cream or plain yogurt

Brown ground beef, drain and set aside. Saute onion, carrots, celery, and basil about 5 min. Stir in flour and add broth, potatoes, and ground beef. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender (15-20 min.). Add salt, pepper, minced garlic, cheese, and milk. Stir and cook to melt cheese and heat soup through. Remove from heat. Blend in sour cream and serve.
