  • 1 Large Onion Diced
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/8 tsp ground mustard
  • 3 medium sized potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 Can Diced Tomato and Green Chili's
  • 32 oz Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 6 Slices Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
  • 2 tbsp. Cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. Water
  • Sesame Bun Croutons (optional garnish)

  • In a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat cook the ground beef along with the onion, garlic powder, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and ground mustard until beef is no longer pink.
  • Drain any grease if necessary.
  • Add the cubed potatoes, diced tomatoes and green chili's, chicken broth, and milk to the pot.
  • Simmer over medium heat until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • Stir in one cup of the shredded cheese until melted.
