Cheeseburger Soup

Cheeseburger Soup
3/4 cup Carrots- shredded
3/4 cup Celery- chopped
3/4 cup onion- chopped
6 cups Potatoes- chopped
5 cups Chicken Broth
1 lb Ground Beef
4 tbsp Butter
2 lb Velveeta cheese (1 big block)- cut into 1" squares
1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Milk
1 cup Sour Cream
2 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Brown ground beef. Remove from pan. Set aside. Add to pan 1 tbsp butter, the carrots, celery and onions. Cook until veggies are tender- about 8-10 minutes. Add potatoes, broth, basil, black pepper and ground beef. Simmer until potatoes are tender- about 10 minutes. While that's simmering, in a small sauce pan, melt remaining tbsp butter. Add flour. Cook for 1 minute. Add milk (warm milk works best). whisk together. Add to soup. Reduce to low heat. Add cheese and sour cream. Stir until cheese is melted.

This recipe makes a TON of soup. We had enough for all 7 of us for at least 2 meals, with some still leftover.
