Recipe: Cheeseburger Soup {healthy version!}

Cheeseburger Soup

You Need:
1/2 cup Carrots, chopped
1/2 cup Celery, chopped
1 cup of long grain rice, cooked
1/2 lb cooked beef
1/2 lb of Velveeta, cubed
1 can of Chicken Broth, low sodium
1 1/2 cup of skim milk

You Do:

1.  First brown your beef.  I browned up a whole lb (cuz I had it!) and saved half for tacos!

2.  Chop up your veggies, cube the cheese and get your rice cooking.

3.  Add the veggies and chicken broth into a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer (uncovered) until veggies are tender.

4.  Next add beef, rice and milk.  Cook for about 15-20 minutes, do not allow mixture to boil. Stir occasionally

5.  Add cheese cubes and cook on low/medium until melted, stirring occasionally.

This recipe makes about 4 servings, each around 240 calories!  I like to freeze a couple cups in those little one serving tupperware things, then you have a super easy lunch!  (sort of like the potato soup, lol)
(FYI, I got this recipe out of a Taste of Home Diet Cookbook and just adapted it a bit.)
