Yummy soup...perfect for any time of the year! Serve with crusty bread and salad. Recipe courtesy of my sister-in-law, Kara Kipe.

1/2 lb. ground beef
3/4 cup carrot, chopped
3/4 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup celery, chopped
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. parsley
4 Tbsp. butter
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups potatoes, peeled & diced
1/4 cup flour
8 oz. American cheese
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup sour cream

Brown beef and drain. Saute onion, carrot, celery, basil and parsley in 1 Tbsp. butter. Add broth, potatoes and beef. Boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender.

Melt 3 Tbsp. butter; add flour. Add butter/flour mixture to soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Reduce to low; add cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Cook until the cheese melts.

Remove from heat and blend in sour cream.
