In a skillet, toss in a pound of ground beef along with your onion & garlic. Cook these together until the meat is browned and the onions are a little tender.

Meanwhile grab a pound of red or yellow potatoes. Wash them up and then cut them into 1 inch pieces.

Wash, trim and peel 3 or 4 carrots, and dice these into 1/2 inch pieces.

Toss the potatoes and carrots into your crockpot along with the ground beef. I used a very lean beef, so there was no grease to drain off, but if you have grease in your pan, just scoop the meat out with a slotted spoon and place it in the crockpot. (I used a 4 quart crockpot here.)

Pour in 1 quart (4 cups) of beef broth.

Now you can’t have a cheeseburger without ketchup and mustard! Add in 1/4 c ketchup and 2 tablespoons of classic yellow mustard.

Give the soup a little kick by adding a teaspoon of chipotle chili pepper. (Note: I am a complete wimp when it comes to spicy food. This gives the soup just a little heat but is not spicy. If you have little ones who are super sensitive, reduce this to 1/2 teaspoon.)

Add in 1/2 teaspoon each of black pepper and salt. Stir this all together.

Cook this on high for 5 1/2 hours or on low for 10 hours (depending on how soon you are starting this and when your supper time is.)

An hour before your soup is done, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan.

Whisk in 2 tablespoons of flour. Let it bubble for just a minute and stir in 1 1/2 cup of milk. Stirring continually, cook this over medium heat until it just begins to boil. Turn the heat down as low as it goes.

Add in 2 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese, stirring until it is melted in.

(Note: You have just made a great cheese sauce for steamed veggies!) Stir the cheesy mixture into the crockpot and let it cook together for the final hour.

Serve the soup with a little extra cheese sprinkled on top, and even add some diced pickles or crumbled bacon if you so desire. Enjoy!
