Directions & How to Prepare

  1. Begin by heating a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and diced onions, frying until the beef is thoroughly cooked and browned. Drain any excess fat.
  2. In a large stockpot, sauté minced garlic until golden. Add the cooked beef and onion mixture, stirring to combine.

  4. Cover and cook on a high flame for 6-8 hours, allowing the potatoes to soften and blend into the broth, enriching the soup’s flavor and texture.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk and cornstarch until smooth. Gradually pour this mixture into the simmering soup, stirring continuously for 1-2 minutes to thicken.
  6. Add cubed Velveeta cheese to the soup, stirring until completely melted and integrated, creating a creamy consistency.
  7. Finish by sprinkling dried parsley leaves into the soup. Continue to simmer until the soup reaches your desired thickness.
