Ingredients

  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cups 2% milk, divided
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (16 ounces) process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • crumbled cooked Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon

Directions

In a Dutch oven, bring the first nine ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and mushrooms in butter over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add to soup. Stir in 4 cups milk; heat through.
In a small bowl, combine flour and remaining milk until smooth; gradually stir into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in cheese until melted. Garnish with bacon. Yield: 14 servings (about 3-1/2 quarts).
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"My husband and I really liked this soup. I added a few red pepper flakes to give it a little zing and was good. Might try and add some ground sausage to it next time."

"Winter comfort in a bowl!

Loved this soup - better than a previous recipe I'd tried, too. I didn't add the mushrooms, green pepper, or jalapenos, and did a bit less milk. At the end it seemed to need some herbs so I added a bit of dill and parsley - and then it was perfect!"
