2012 Soup Swap~~Stuffed Pepper Soup


I love soup, in all shapes and sizes.  For me it is the ultimate comfort food.  So I was very excited when fellow Crew mate over at Milk & Honey Mommy said she was doing a soup swap.

I posted this last year, but it is our favorite soup! 

Stuffed Pepper Soup
 
2 Pounds Ground Beef
2 Cups Chopped Green Bell Pepper
1 Cup Chopped Onion
2 Jars of Spaghetti Sauce
2 Cups Cooked Long Grain White Rice
2 Beef Bouillon Cube
1/4 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
2 Teaspoons Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
 
In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, brown beef with peppers and onion.  Add remaining ingredients, except rice and bring to a boil. Add rice reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes
or until rice is tender.
 
We like this soup more like a stew so I add more rice then what is called for.  I've also done this in the crockpot.  Just cook up the beef along with the peppers and onions.  Add everything to the crockpot and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until rice is done.

Jen,

That spoonful looks delicious. I may substitute the meat ingredient w/a grain and see how it taste. You have also put me in the mood for stuffed peppers. I've never tried making a soup using my crock-pot, but I'm sure it would save me some time over the stove.

Thank you for joining the soup swap.

I call my crock-pot my little sous-chef. Nothing makes me happier than knowing dinner's taken care of. I'll have to try this.
