Recipe Swap!

They are having a Recipe Swap at Craftaholics Anonymous, so I wanted to join in the fun. Here is one of my favorites!

Cheeseburger Soup - Adapted from Sparkpeople.com
(Yields 6 servings)

1-1/2 cup water
2 cups peeled cubed potatoes
2 carrots, grated
1 small onion chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp salt
2 cubes beef bouillon, crumbled
1 lb lean ground beef
2 1/2 cups fat free milk
3 tbsp flour
1/2 lb 2% milkfat cheese, cubed

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine water, potatoes, carrots, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and bouillon.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are tender.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef; drain. Rinse with water and drain again.
Stir cooked beef and 1 1/4 cups milk into potato mixture and heat through.
Combine 1 1/4 cups milk with flour.
Stir until smooth. Stir into soup.
Bring to a low boil and cook stirring until thickened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cheese until melted.

Sounds delicious! I adore soups, especially when they don't have all kinds of weird ingredients in them.
