1 pound American cheese
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
2 large green peppers such as anaheim or hatch peppers, diced fine
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter

Place the choppped onion, thinly sliced celery, and diced peppers in a saute pan over medium heat, add the two tablespoons of butter, and saute until the onions are translucent. In a medium pot add American cheese, sauteed vegetables, and milk. Heat on a low to a medium heat until the cheese is melted.
