This soup is delicious! I left out the ground beef, and I used Worcestershire sauce instead of hot sauce. This recipe is a keeper!

Good soup, just not what I expected. I followed all the directions and used bell pepper. After it was cooked, it smelled and tasted like stuffed bell peppers! It was good, but not what I was looking for in a "spanish rice' flavor. I did add some more water (after I tried it), too thick for my liking and I served it with dollop of sour cream, now that did make it taste more like what I was looking for. I'll make it again because I love soup! But I might add some rotel tomatoes to give it that flavor I am looking for.
