1 tsp dried parsley
3 C chicken broth

About 45 minutes before serving, cook and crumble ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain any grease. Pour cooked ground beef into crock pot. Carefully wipe out hot skillet with a paper towel then add butter. When butter is melted whisk in flour and cook until golden brown and bubbly (about 1 minute.) Whisk in the milk, salt, and pepper. Pour mixture into the crock pot and stir to combine everything.
Combine the cubed Velveeta cheese or shredded cheese to the crock pot. Stir again. Cover with lid and cook on high for another thirty minutes or until cheese is melted.
