I have been making this recipe since I had kids living at home. This is a very simple recipe that quickly comes together and is easy to make. My oldest son Jeff and wife Danielle loved this chowder. I even had a special sous chef helping me in the kitchen today, my Princes, Willow.
1 large carrot grated, at least 1/2 cup (grated)
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
3 cups beef broth
1 can Rotel, I used mild
2 cups cooked white rice, I used Uncle Bens boil in a bag
1 pound hamburger, seasoned with garlic salt and pepper, drain fat
1 pound Velveeta cheese, torn in small pieces
1 can Cheddar Cheese Soup, I used Campbell’s
2 soup cans of whole milk
1 cup of sour cream
1 bunch of chives, cut into pieces
Fried onions if desired
Vegetables simmering in broth.
In a frying pan. brown beef and drain fat. In a separate pan cook rice according to package directions. Set both aside when done. In a stockpot, add carrots, celery and onion. Add broth and simmer 10 minutes after it comes to a boil. This this soften the vegetables. Add rice and burger to the beef broth mixture. Add Rotel. I tore the Velveeta in torn pieces so it will melt faster. Add cheddar cheese soup and 2 soup cans of milk. Stir well and do not let the soup boil. Just before serving, add the sour cream and a bunch of cut chives. Garnish with fried onions on top if desired. Enjoy! 😋
