Winter is official here and that means it is time to break out all of the soup dishes I have been dying to make all year long! This past week we have been experiencing temperatures of the subzero kind. Talk about freezing! Our poor little pugs get this sad look on their face every time we tell them it is time to go outside, poor dogs!!!!
When I think of weather this cold I instantly think of soup, and not just any soup – comfort soup! Comfort soup to me means a think and hearty soup, not a broth based chicken noodle! Nothing makes me feel better on a cold winter night than eating a hearty bowl of stick to your ribs soup!
This is definitely what I would call comfort soup! It takes one of Mark and I’s favorite food, Cheeseburgers, and transforms it into a creamy, cheesy, flavor-packed soup which warms your entire body and leaves you craving more. It is AMAZING and has become a favorite around our house!

2 pounds Ground Beef
1 cup White Onion, chopped
3 cups Potatoes, peeled & diced into 1/4″ cubes
2 teaspoons Basil
1 tablespoon Dried Parsley
3 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
1 block (32 ounces) Velveeta Cheese, cubed into 1/2″ pieces
1 1/2 cups Milk
Salt & Pepper
In a large stock pot, brown the ground beef and onions together until meat is cooked and the onions are tender, then drain the grease out of the pot. Stir in the basil and the parsley. Add the potatoes and chicken broth into the pot and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, turn the pot down to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are soft.
Once the potatoes are soft, add the Velveeta cheese, milk and salt/pepper to taste. Turn the heat down to low and stir until the cheese is all melted. Once the cheese is melted allow the soup to cook on low for 5 minutes before serving!
