Super Bowl Food

Is anyone hosting a Super Bowl party on Sunday? I will share with you the recipe that I will be making for the friends we have coming over. This soup is so good, it will become one of your favorites. Of course there will be lots of yummy dips/snacks/appetizers but it's always nice to have a main course kind of food.

Cheeseburger Soup

1 lb hamburger
3/4 chopped onion
3/4 carrot (we substitue green pepper for this since I don't like carrots)
3/4 celery
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
4 tablespoons butter
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups potatoes (we use much easier!)
1/4 cup flour
2 cups velveta
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup sour cream
salt and pepper
In a 3 qt sauce pan, ground beef, drain and set aside. In same sauce pan, sauté onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 tablespoon of butter until tender (10 minutes). Add broth, potatoes and beef and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potaotes are tender. In another small skillet melt rest of butter, add flour, cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly (make a rue). Add it to the soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes, reduce heat to low and add cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat and blend in sour cream. Enjoy!
