3 garlic cloves, minced

1-2 carrots, chopped

1-2 ribs celery, chopped

1 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon pepper

3 cups chicken broth

1/2 cup milk of choice or heavy cream

1 Tablespoon corn starch or flour

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or Velvetta

Optional toppings: bacon, cheese, tomatoes, croutons or green onions


Press Sauté in the Instant Pot (IP) or heat a large pot. Once hot, add ground meat and cook until no longer pink. Drain and set aside.

( If adding bacon for topping, cook bacon until crisp and set aside. Use the oil from bacon for next step)

Add butter or oil. Add onions and cook for a few minutes. Add in garlic, carrots and celery and continue to sauté for a couple of minutes. Add in salt, pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire and stir together. Press cancel if using IP.

Add cooked meat, potatoes and broth and stir together.

IP: Close lid and cook on manual high pressure for 8 minutes and quick release pressure.

Stove top: Bring to a boil and cook covered over low heat for about 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

To thicken: (Press Sauté if using IP). Add milk into a measuring cup and whisk in cornstarch. Stir the mixture into the soup and simmer for a few minutes until soup has thickened, stirring often.

Add in cheese and stir until melted. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Top with optional garnish and serve.
