Quick Cheeseburger Chowder

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

A quick, hearty dish that is easy to put together. I found it years ago in a Better Homes & Garden Hamburger and Ground Meats cookbook. Gosh--does that make me sound old?

This really is a great recipe. I put the onions, celery and peppers in the processor to puree as DD hates to find "chunks". She really liked the flavor and the "Cheesy Cheese"-we did have more at the table. Thanks for posting, Di

I think this was missing something. It tasted very "flour-y". I had to add a lot of pepper and sea salt to mine.
