Preheat oven to 350 F.  Melt butter in skillet till hot. Add onion, celery, and carrots.  Brown vegetables until softened.  I add about 1/2 cup of water to skillet after about 5 to 8 minutes, cover and steam the vegetables a little.  Add ground meat and brown, season with black pepper.  Drain grease.
Spray a 9x13 casserole pan with cooking spray.  Add 1/2 bag of tater tots to casserole.  Add peas to meat mixture and cream of chicken soups.  Add milk and mix well.  Pour over tater tots and mix in pan.  Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese and mix again.  Top the casserole with tater tots.  I place each one individually so they are all lined up and looking happy!!  Bake for 45 minutes,  Top with the other cup of cheese and brown under broiler till cheese and tater tots are golden brown and bubbly!!
