1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
3/4 c. shredded carrots
3/4 c. chopped celery
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried parsley
6 c. chicken broth
2 lb. potatoes, peeled and diced
3 tbsp. butter
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 lb. Velveeta, cubed
1 1/2 c. milk
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepperę

Cook ground beef in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring until meat crumbles. Add onion and next 4 ingredients, and saute 4 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Drain well and return beef mixture to Dutch oven.

Stir in chicken broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Melt 3 tbsp. butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until flour is lightly browned. Whisk flour mixture into simmering beef mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes or until thickened.

Whisk in cheese and next 3 ingredients just until cheese melts.
