Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Cook ground beef in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring until meat crumbles. Add onion and next 4 ingredients, and sauté 4 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Drain well. Return beef mixture to Dutch oven.

Stir in chicken broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until flour is lightly browned. Whisk flour mixture into simmering beef mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes or until thickened.

Whisk in cheese and next 3 ingredients just until cheese melts. Serve with Easy Breadsticks, if desired.
