Creamy Cheeseburger Soup

Servings 6 people

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots shredded
  • 1 /2 cup celery diced
  • 1 /2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups potatoes diced
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. In large saucepan, brown ground beef and drain. Set aside and saute onions, carrots, celery, basil, and parsley in 1 TBSP butter until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes on med/low heat. 

    2)Add broth, potatoes, and meat, bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10-12 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Add milk and bring almost to boil, remove from heat and add cream cheese, cheese, and salt and pepper. Stir periodically until cheeses are melted. 

    Notes - I usually whisk the cheese cheese into the soup to get the pieces all melted. You could also melt the cream cheese and cheese into the milk in a separate pan before adding. Use low heat!
