This is a great recipe that I make often. Don't let the Velveeta
cheese turn you off. I never tried this recipe for a long time because
I thought made with Velveeta how good can it be. All I can say is give
it a try once and let me know what you think. It is one of my favorites.

Dice celery stalks, onions and jalapenos. Cut Velveeta into cubes.

In a large saucepan place the chicken broth, celery, onions, garlic
salt, and white pepper. Cook over high heat for 10 minutes, or until the
mixture reduces and thickens slightly.

In a blender or food processor place the broth and the cheese. Puree
them together until the mixture is smooth.  Return the pureed mixture to 
the saucepan and simmer it for 5 minutes.  Add the diced peppers and mix 
them in well.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream and warm flour tortillas.
