The most creamy and cheesy soup that is loaded with ground beef, potatoes and carrots. This soup is a family-favorite!

Ingredients

  • 4 small potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 small white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk ( I use 2%)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (16 oz.) package Velveeta processed cheese, cubed OR 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

1- Place potatoes, onions, carrots, celery, dried basil and parsley in a large crock pot. Pour chicken broth over vegetables. Cover with lid. Cook on low heat 6 to 8 hours OR on high heat 4 to 5 hours or until potatoes are tender.

2- About 45 minutes before serving, cook and crumble ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain any grease. Pour cooked ground beef into crock pot. Carefully wipe out hot skillet with a paper towel then add butter. When butter is melted whisk in flour and cook until golden brown and bubbly (about 1 minute.) Whisk in the milk, salt and pepper. Pour mixture into the crock pot and stir to combine everything.

3- Add the cubed velveeta cheese or shredded cheese to crock pot. Stir again. Cover with lid and cook another 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve and enjoy!
