Cheeseburger Soup

My friend Stephanie gave me this receipe for a yummy soup that I made last night. It is very hearty, creamy, and delicious! My family loved this meal! It has a lot of good stuff in it (carrots, celery, potatoes, etc.) but you can't really taste it, so it is a great meal for kids. It was a great way to sneak some veggies into Clayton's dinner! This is our new favorite creamy soup!

1/2 lb. browned hamburger
3/4 c. shredded carrots
1 tsp. dried basil
4 tbsp. butter divided
4 c. peeled diced potatoes
8 oz. Velveeta (cut into cubes)
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 c. chopped onion
3/4 c. diced celery
1 tsp. parsley
3 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. sour cream

Saute onion, carrots, celery, basil, and parsley in 1 tbsp. butter for about 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes, beef, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 10-12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small pan melt 3 tbsp. butter and add flour. Cook and stir about 3-5 min. Add to soup. Bring to a boil, cook about 2min. Reduce heat to low, add velveeta, salt, and pepper. Cook (while stirring) until cheese melts. Remove from heat, stir in sour cream and enjoy!
**I served it with warm homemade bread, this is the PERFECT soup to dip with!**
