Cheeseburger Soup

This soup doesn't actually taste like a cheeseburger, but it's super cheesy and there is hamburger in it, hence: cheeseburger soup!

1/3 lb ground beef
3/4 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup carrots, shredded
3/4 cup celery, chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
4 tbsp butter
3 cups beef broth
4 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup flour
3 cups Cheddar cheese, cubed
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup sour cream

In a dutch oven, melt 1 tbsp butter or margarine over medium heat. Cook and stir vegetables and beef, until beef is brown.

Stir in basil and parsley. Add broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.

In a small bowl, melt the remaining butter and stir in flour. Add the milk, stirring until smooth.

Gradually add the milk mixture to the soup, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Stir in cheese. When the cheese is melted, add sour cream and heat through. Do not boil

Serve and devour!
