Serves: 6
Total Calories: 380


2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1 onion, chopped
1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
2 1/2 cups milk, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (8-ounce) package pasteurized process cheese spread, cubed
1 Optional: 1/4 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 Garnish: 1/2 pound bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled


Combine vegetables, water, bouillon and salt in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender; stir in ground beef and 2 cups milk. Combine flour and remaining milk in a small bowl until smooth; stir gradually into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes, until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat; stir in cheese until melted. Add cayenne pepper, if desired. Top with bacon just before serving.

Tip: Pre-warmed soup bowls are a thoughtful touch that's oh-so simple to do. Just place bowls in a 250-degree oven as you put the finishing touches on dinner.
