3/4 cup diced celery (75 g)

1 tsp dried basil (2 g)

1 tsp dried parsley flakes (2 g)

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 tbsp. butter, divided (56 g)

3 cups chicken broth (710 ml)

4 cups diced potatoes, peeled (about 1 3/4 lb. or 794 g)

1/4 cup all-purpose flour (30 g), can be substituted with gluten-free flour

12 oz. pepper jack Velveeta cheese, cubed (340 g)

1 1/2 cups milk (360 ml)

3/4 tsp salt (4 g)

1/4 tsp black pepper (1 g)

1/4 cup sour cream (60 g)


In a 3-quart saucepan, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain and set aside.

In the same saucepan over medium heat, sauté the onion, carrots, celery, basil, and parsley in 1 tablespoon of butter until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the chicken broth, diced potatoes, and browned ground beef to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.


Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt the remaining butter. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add this mixture to the soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Reduce heat to low. Add the cubed cheese, milk, salt, and black pepper. Cook and stir until the cheese is melted and the soup is heated through. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream.
