Cheeseburger Corn Chowder

Tonight my husband wanted cheeseburger soup and I wanted corn chowder.  This is the compromise.

1 lb. Ground beef
1 med. Onion, diced
4 med. Yukon gold potatoes, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3/4 c chopped carrot
2 cups chicken broth
1 can corn kernels, drained
4 Tbsp butter
1/4 c flour
2 1/2 c milk
2 c shredded cheddar blend cheese
1 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Brown ground beef.  Add onion, potatoes, celery, and carrot and saute until onion is translucent.   Add chicken broth, cover and simmer 25 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.  Add in corn.  In a small pan, make roux with butter and flour.  Cook roux for 3 minutes to get rid of raw flour taste.   Soup pot should be simmering while you whisk in the roux to the ground beef mixture.  Keep stirring until completely mixed and soup starts to thicken.  Add milk and stir to heat through, then add cheese and stir until cheese is melted and mixed in thoroughly.   Finally, add parsley and salt & pepper to taste.

I'm sorry, but I  couldn't take an appetizing photo of this soup :(
