Mmm...Mmmm...Good. This has great flavors, and sticks to your ribs. When I made it, I made a roux by melting 4 tablespoons butter and adding the flour to it and eventually the milk and cheese. I also used more onion and more celery. I will post the recipe as written. Recipe courtesy of Taste of Home Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2009.
