I used to make this soup at a restaurant I worked at and it was by far one of the favorites. You can just use green peppers if you want, but I prefer to use a combination of peppers to add more color to the soup.

- 4 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
- 2 medium potatoes, grated
- 2 medium carrots, grated
- 2 stalks celery, finely chopped

Great soup Denny. I added a clove of pressed garlic and some corn and it went really nice.
This soup is DELICIOUS!! Followed recipe as written-only change was I used 3 cups of milk. Thanks for sharing Denny2.
Excellent soup. Made it with one green, one red, and one yellow pepper and one large sweet white onion. I also used rich homemade chicken broth instead of the water so I reduced the chicken bouillon mix to 2 tablespoons. Served with grilled cheese sandwiches for a meal. This pot made about 12-1/2 cups but the recipe could be easily halved. Will definitely make it again so I added the recipe to my favorite zaar recipes three-ring binder.
