Tasty Tuesday

(this recipe is from the Taste of Home Winning Recipes Cookbook)

i haven't tried this yet, but it is on the list.

1/2 lb ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup shredded carrots
3/4 cup diced celery
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
4 Tbsp butter divided
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups diced, peeled potatoes
1/4 cup all purpose flour
8 oz velveeta
1.5 cups milk
1/4-1/2 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sour cream

brown beef, drain and set aside. then in same pan, saute onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 Tbsp butter until tender. add broth, potatoes and beef. bring to a boil. reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

in another skillet melt remaining butter. add flour. cook and stir for 3-5 minutes until bubbly. add to soup. bring to a boil. cook and stir for 2 minutes. reduce to low. add cheese, milk, salt and pepper. cook and stir until cheese melts. remove from heat and blend in sour cream.

makes 8 servings.

(tambo, i'm sure if you just used all of the low fat stuff, this would make a good WW soup. you could probably get away with omitting the butter and flour and adding in a tbsp or so of the LF gravy mix like in WW potato soup.)
