Cheeseburger Soup


1 1/2 quarts of water

2 cups cubed potatoes (your choice, I use red and leave the skins on)

2 small carrots, grated

1 small onion, chopped

1 small green pepper, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp beef bullion, or 1 packet of Beef Herbox

1/2 tsp salt

1 lb hamburg, cooked and drained

2 1/2 cups of milk

3 Tbsp flour

8 oz Velveeta cheese

1/2 lb cooked and crumbled bacon, or real bacon pieces

~ In a large pan, combine all ingredients up to and including salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are cooked.

Stir in hamburger and 2 cups of milk. Heat through.

Combine flour and 1/2 cup of milk and stir until smooth.  Gradually stir into soup. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes and the soup is thick and bubbly.

Reduce heat and stir in cheese. Continue stirring until all is melted and blended well.

Top with bacon and crackers.

~Brown hamburger, drain thoroughly.  Place in a slow cooker.

Chop up peppers into bite size pieces and add to the slow cooker.  Dump in the can of stewed tomatoes.

Cook on low for about 3 hours, then turn to high for about 20-30 minutes.

You could also do this on a simmer setting in a pot on the stove.
