Sauté butter and flour on low heat for 10 minutes in a sauté pan separate from the other ingredients.
Add milk, evaporated milk, simmer slowly until all is warm. Add all cheeses stirring continually.
Add warm Butter and flour mixture. Simmer for 5-10 minutes stirring often, careful not to scorch the bottom of the pan. Serves 8-10.

****Note: Simmering times may vary depending on degree of simmer. This is a fabulous soup and a real hit at parties. Also for a "real" nice flare, subtract half the water and add a bottle and a half of Sam Adams. Also a nice addition is 3-5 drops of Tabasco this will not add much heat at all but improve all the flavors to come to the surface and to your nose as you eat it.
