Cheeseburger Chowder


1/2 lb ground beef
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp taco seasoning (I mostly eyeballed it)
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 cup shredded carrot
3/4 cup sliced celery
1 tsp fresh basil
1 tsp fresh parsley
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
3-4 red potatoes, diced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
3 cups milk
8oz Velveeta cheese, cubed
3 slices of muenster cheese
3/4 tsp pepper
Salt if desired
Brown meat. Add onion, carrot, and celery with spices and saute for a couple of minutes. Add broth and potatoes and cook till tender. Meanwhile, whisk 2 Tbsp of the flour with 2 cups of the milk till there are no lumps. Set aside. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low to medium heat. Whisk in the 2 Tbsp of butter, cook and stir for about 30 seconds or till smooth. Slowly whisk in the milk/flour mixture. Stir constantly til mixture comes to a boil, then cook for at least one minute. Add the cheese and stir til melted. When vegetables are tender, add the cheese sauce to the pan with the remaining milk. Add pepper and salt to taste and heat through.
