  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 jalapeƱo, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound extra lean ground beef, browned and drained
  • 1-1/2 cups non-fat evaporated milk, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 pound reduced-fat pasteurized process cheese, cubed (I used reduced fat Velveeta)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika


  • In a large saucepan set over medium, combine the broth, vegetables and salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Stir in the ground beef and 1 cup of the evaporated milk.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour and remaining 1/2 cup evaporated milk until it's smooth, then gradually stir it into the soup.
  • Bring to a simmer, cook and stir until thick and bubbly, 2 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat, add the cheese and paprika and stir until melted.
