Cheeseburger Soup

I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com yesterday and had to try it. It was yummy! Even Daniel scarfed his down with a minimum of playing. (MIRACLE!) Here is my version of the recipe:

1 1/2 cups water
2 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
1 small onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cubes beef bouillion
1 pound ground beef
2 1/2 cups milk divided
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 pound processed American cheese, cubed
chili powder and cumin to taste
Prepared bacon

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, potatoes, onion, garlic and bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender.

In the mean time, brown and drain the ground beef.

Stir cooked beef and 2 cups milk into the soup and heat through. Combine the remaining 1/2 cup of milk with the flour and stir until smooth. Stir into soup. Bring to a low boil and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in cheese until melted. Add chili
powder and cumin to taste.

Crumble bacon over the top of the soup and serve.

This is definitely going to become a regular in our house this winter. It was quick and easy and REALLY good.

Anything with bacon in it is ok with me. I went to a fancy dinner for business over Christmas and they served scallops wrapped in bacon. Wow.
