This cheesy soup is one of my most requested favorites by friends and family. Nothing warms you up better than this great chowder. It is amazingly good.

Instructions Checklist

  • Stir broth, potatoes, carrots, garlic, parsley, basil, salt, and black pepper into the beef mixture. Simmer over low heat, covered, until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Mix milk and flour together in a small bowl. Pour into the pot. Bring back up to a simmer until chowder flavors combine, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Stir processed cheese and sour cream into chowder when it is no longer boiling, to prevent curdling. Ladle into serving bowls and top each serving with some diced tomatoes.

Made as written and used Rotel for the diced tomatoes. This turned out great for me on the first day I made it. Unfortunately the cheese didn't melt very good with the leftovers. Not sure what happened? Flavor was still good but I had tiny balls of cheese throughout the soup with the leftovers that refused to melt. Taste will still good just a little odd to look at. Overall I enjoyed this and I will make it again. Read More

Soooo good! Freezes well too. I skipped the sour cream because I didn t have any and I didn t notice it for tomatoes so I botched that. It was similar to a broccoli and cheese soup. Read More
