Cheeseburger Soup

This is my soup recipe for the soup exchange on BooMama . Reading any recipe doesn't really get me excited, I need pictures. You will have to trust me that this soup is so yummy that once you make it you will want to make it often.

1/2 lb ground beef, browned and drained
3/4 c chopped onion
3/4 c shredded carrots
3/4 c diced celery
1t basil
1t parsley flakes
4T butter
3c chicken broth
4c peeled diced potatoes
8oz pkg velveeta
1 1/2 c milk
1/4 c flour
3/4 t salt
1/4-1/2 t pepper
1/4 c sour cream

Saute onion, carrots, celery, basil, and parsley in 1T butter until vegetables are tender (about 10 min). Add broth, potatoes, and ground beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10-12 min. or until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet melt remaining butter. Add flour, cook and stir 3-5 min or until slightly brown and bubbly. Add to soup; bring to a boil. Cook and stir briefly, then reduce heat to low. Add velveeta, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir until velveeta melts, remove from heat and add sour cream.

This soup always seems like alot of work and like it is taking forever to make, but it is soo worth it.
