Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup

This is a recipe that I've been playing around with for a few months. I had stuffed pepper soup for the first time at a restaurant and was determined to try and copy it. I've made this version several times and think I've finally got it -- 3 people have requested a copy of it and that's usually a pretty good indication that my recipe has "arrived". I hope you will try it.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Brown the ground beef, onion and garlic in large pot or Dutch Oven.
  2. Then add the chopped green bell pepper (I cut it up and place it in my food processor and give it a couple quick rotations – just enough to grind a bit of it, while still leaving some of it in larger pieces).
  3. Cook until the pepper is starting to get tender. Add rest of the ingredients, except cheese and rice and bring to a slow boil over low heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
  4. Decrease heat to a simmer and cover. Simmer slowly for 30 minutes, stirring often. Add the rice and cook another 15 minutes, stirring and watching carefully. This soup can get pretty thick in a short amount of time.
  5. Add 1 cup of the cheese and stir until melted. Sprinkle individual servings with a little bit more of shredded cheddar (either mild or sharp) cheese.
  6. Note: I put the stewed tomatoes in my food processor and pulse them for a couple quick rotations before adding them to the soup pot.

Contrary to w.j. I love this recipe!!! I didnt spend anywhere near 20 dollars on ingredients ,most items were staples in my pantry. The rice is a non-issue since rice is usually a 2-1 measure with water. Any recipe is a guideline,of course you are going to season it to suit you and whoever you are cooking for. So again, I say KUDOS Bobbie for another GREAT recipe!!

Fantastic recipe, I used 1/2 green and 1/2 red peppers. Very hearty and filling on a cold November night. Left out cheddar and served with grated parmesan on top. Thank you for super recipe.
