Cheeseburger Chowder

1 lb. lean ground beef
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup sliced baby carrots
3/4 cup diced celery
1 tea. dried basil
1 tea. parsley flakes
6 Tablespoons butter, divided
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups diced potatoes (peeled)
1/4 cup flour
8 ounces Velveeta, cubed
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tea. salt
1/2 tea. pepper
1/2 cup sour cream

In a large saucepan, brown ground beef. Drain and set aside. In the same pan, saute onion, celery, carrots, basil and parsley in 2 tablespoons of butter until tender. Add broth, potatoes and beef. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer covered for about 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when pierced with fork. 

Meanwhile, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour. Gradually whisk in milk and cook until thick. Add cheese and continue cooking until melted. 

Gently combine both mixtures. Stir in sour cream before serving.

Serves 6

This sounds really yummy. I seen a similar recipe somewhere for "Cheeseburger Soup" but it was mostly just hamburger and velveeta, more like a dip, maybe? I bet my family [aside from Dairy-Allergic Cas] would love this. :) Thanks for sharing.
