Dirty Cheeseburger Soup

Dirty Cheeseburger Soup

A family favorite, I call this comfort soup "dirty"because I use organic vegetables and clean them well, but do not peel the potatoes or carrots. You can peel them if desired. You can also make this gluten free by using the GF flour of your choice. I have not tried a vegan version of this soup. Lastly, you can use ground beef or ground sausage, but our family, hands down, prefers ground turkey for this recipe!
