I received this recipe as part of an e-mail recipe exchange and really enjoy it. I love stuffed peppers, so I was game to try this recipe as soon as I read the name. However, even those who don’t like stuffed peppers seem to like this soup. The recipe says to cook in a large pot, but I usually throw the ingredients into the crock-pot and let it simmer all day. Just be careful not to add the rice too soon if you’re using a crock-pot. Mushy rice does not make a pleasant soup.
Stuffed Pepper Soup
1 1/2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained
3 large diced green peppers (or a combination of sweet yellow, red or orange peppers)
28 oz can diced tomatoes
28 oz can tomato sauce
15 oz beef broth
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups cooked rice
salt, pepper and garlic to taste.
Mix all ingredients except rice in large pot. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes, uncovered…stir often. Add cooked rice.
Serve and enjoy!
