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.

Great soup Denny. I added a clove of pressed garlic and some corn and it went really nice.

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.
