    5 TBS margarine
    2 carrots, chopped
    1 green pepper chopped (I replace with 1 C seeded, diced tomatoes - Jo)
    1 onion, chopped
    5 button mushrooms, chopped
    1/2 C diced ham
    1/2 C flour
    2 TBS cornstarch
    4 C chicken broth
    4 C milk
    1/2 tsp paprika
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    2 C shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    salt, and pepper

    Saute vegetables and ham in margarine, until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Don't brown. Add flour and cornstarch and stir constantly about 3 minutes. Add broth and stir constantly until slightly thickened. Add milk, paprika, cayenne, mustard. Add cheese gradually, stirring until melted. DO NOT BOIL. Season to taste.
