this was really good. i made this soup especially for my 3yo dd because she absolutely loves bell peppers! the only changes i made were to triple the seasonings and i needed to add more beef bouillon. as for the rice, i made it up separately and let people add as much as they wanted upon serving (dd made it very clear she didn't want rice in her bell pepper soup!). i used v8 for the tomato juice. thanks so much for posting. this was enjoyed by everyone and i will make many more times. this reheated well the next day too! made for spring pac '10
Very Yummy! Perfect for a cold winters day. Thanks for sharing.
