  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets, chopped
  • ¼ cup red pepper, chopped

  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 can of beer

In a Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add celery, carrots and onion and sauté until tender. Add broccoli and red pepper. Stir in broth and salt and pepper to taste.
