Stuffed Pepper Soup

It’s been raining a lot here lately, and very windy too! As the weather begins to get colder and colder, all I want to do is snuggle up on the couch with a warm blanket, a magazine and a bowl of soup. This Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe comes from a friend, many, many moons ago.

Do you love Stuffed Peppers? Don’t like Stuffed Peppers? It’s funny how almost the same ingredients taste completely different in two different dishes. I personally, do not care for them, but this soup…I love! I know, weird!

This soup is best cooked in the Slow Cooker, low and slow, but it also taste delicious cooked on the stovetop. Doug followed my original recipe and used ground beef, but during dinner, we decided it would taste even better if pork or Italian sausage was used instead of the ground beef. Or even, in addition to, maybe half and half.

    Just made this soup for the first time yesterday. I must say “Er Mah Gerd” it is soo good. Your belly will be full and you’ll still want more.

  3. I just made this recipe to eat for dinner tonight, after finding this website just this morning. I can’t wait to taste it! It smells wonderful just cooking. I omitted the brown sugar, but added in an onion, some chili powder and cumin. Thank you for a quick and easy dinner idea!!
