How To Make Our Best Cheeseburger Soup Recipe:
Grab your large saucepan and add in the ground beef and brown it until it is no longer pink.
The drain the grease from the pan and set the meat aside in a small bowl for later.
In the same saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
Then add in the diced onion, shredded carrots, diced celery, a sprinkle of basil and parsley on top and saute all of the vegetables together until they are tender. This should take about 8-10 minutes.
Next you are going to add in the cubed potatoes, chicken broth, and cooked ground beef (that you set aside) to the saucepan and let the ingredients come to a boil.
Once it has reached the boiling point, turn down the heat and let it simmer covered until the potatoes are tender. Depending on the size you cut them it should take about 10-12 minutes.
While the soup is cooking, in a small skillet, place the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and melt it over medium heat.
After the butter has melted, add in the flour and whisk it together until it begins to get nice and bubbly. Doing this you are creating your rue for the soup.
When the flour mixture becomes bubbly add it to the soup and mix it in.
Then turn the temperature to slow and stir in the Velveeta cheese, milk, salt, and pepper.
Continue stirring it all together until the cheese has completely melted.
After the ingredients are all melted and combined, remove the soup from heat and serve it in a bowl with sour cream and some fresh parsley and enjoy!
