Cheeseburger Chowder

Here is a nice comforting dish to make for dinner tonight! I love this recipe because it is simple and I usually have these ingredients on hand. It is a child pleaser, and delicious with warm homemade biscuits on the side. Autumn has begun!

1 lb. ground beef
2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
½ cup chopped celery
¼ cup chopped onion
1 T. instant beef bouillon granules
¼ t. pepper
½ t. salt
1½ cups water
2½ cups milk
3 T. flour
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar

-In large stock pot, brown beef; drain. Stir in potatoes, celery, onion, bouillon, pepper, salt and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes. In medium bowl, whisk flour into ½ cup of milk; add to pot along with remaining milk. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Add cheese; heat and stir until cheese melts.

This is delicious! My kids loved it, too! Don't try to substitute mild or medium cheese, though. I tried mild. You couldn't really tell there was cheese in it. You need the sharp.
