I got this recipe from my mom many years ago and is a winter time favorite in our house. Definitely one of my favorite comfort foods on a cold night.

This is the same recipe my mom made for us when we were very young. I don't remember the green peppers, or the kidney beans. But it's been over 40 years since I had this. I've been trying to remember this recipe for nearly that long. Thank you so much for bringing back some wonderful memories of my child hood. Melody A/Lansing Il.
