Stuffed Pepper Soup

29 Jan

I have had this recipe bookmarked for a long time, and just got around to making it. I thought it was really good, we will definitely be repeating it in our house. This soup is very thick, more like a stew. I actually reduced the amount of rice in the recipe by 1/2 cup, but it was still really thick. Next time I will only use one cup of rice total in the recipe, as I like a little more broth. I also reduced the amount of ground beef, and thought it turned out perfect. I topped this with shredded cheddar cheese, and served a loaf of cheese bread from the deli on the side. I’m posting the recipe with the changes I made, and with the adjustments I will make next time I make it. This recipe makes alot (about 12 cups), so I plan on freezing the leftovers for another night.
