Cheeseburger Soup by Brenda Riden

Since it's still cold and dreary, here's another soup recipe to warm you up.

Cheeseburger Soup

1/4 cup butter
1 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced

1/2 lb. Hamburger meat, browned and grease drained
8 cups potatoes, cubed
2 carrots, grated
3 cans Chicken Broth

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour

1/2 lb. Velveeta Cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream

 salt and pepper, to taste

1. Melt 1/4 cup of the butter in a large 5 qt. pot and saute the onions and the celery until clear. 
2. Add cooked hamburger meat, potatoes, and carrots along with the chicken broth. Simmer until the potatoes and carrots are tender. 
3. While this is cooking, put the remaining 1/4 cup butter in a saucepan and melt over low heat. Add the flour. Stir until thick then set aside. 
4. Once the potatoes are done to your liking, add the flour mixture to thicken the soup. Stir well. 
5. Add the cheese cut into cubes along with the milk. Stir occasionally, until the cheese is melted.  
6. Right before serving take the soup off of the heat and add the sour cream. Stir until incorporated and then serve.
