  • 1 Celery Stalk, finely diced

  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 3 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Optional Thickener

  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add carrots, onion, and celery. Cook until tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add flour and coat vegetables, cook an additional 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add ground mustard, garlic, salt, pepper, beer and stir to make a paste. Slowly begin adding chicken broth while constantly stirring to blend well.
