Got any Cheese(burger)?

Well, here we are, in the midst of the January doldrums.  The holidays are over.  New Years resolutions may still be happening (I'm about 50/50), and some may have fallen by the wayside.  All I know is, it's crock pot season.  I adore my crock pot with the tenacity of a kid in a candy store, and I use it quite frequently.  In the summer, it keeps the house cool, in the winter, you can make yummy soups and casseroles that are hearty, but not time consuming.  And now that it's January, I can use it to make some low fat deliciousness that is warm, hearty and not too bad for the ole waistline.  Check it out!

Cheeseburger Soup

16 oz 90% lean ground beef
One medium onion, minced
4 cups chicken stock
1 cup each green pepper, red pepper
2 tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 cup dill relish
1/4 cup mustard
2 tbsp ketchup (garnish)
1/2 cup 2% cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef and onions in saucepan.  Add beef, onion, garlic, stock, peppers, relish and mustard to crock pot.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Add cheese, cook on low for 30 minutes.  Ladle into bowls, drizzle with ketchup.  Serve with warm crusty bread.
Perfect for a snowy Thursday.  You're welcome :-)
