This afternoon we're sharing Lisa's Stuffed Pepper Soup
Lisa's Stuffed Pepper Soup
also known as: Jane's Hamburger, Rice , Pepper Soup
I double this recipe and freeze part to have later. It is fantastic fresh and right then but good on day two and three or frozen.
1 lb hamburger browned and drained (I usually put in 2 lbs at least)
1 can diced tomatoes + juice
1 can tomato soup
1 cup uncooked rice
2 qt water - might need to add a little more
4 beef bouillon cubes (I don't use cubes, too salty. I use beef soup base. One or two spoons full and adjust water accordingly)
1 can tomato sauce
3-4 cups peppers chopped (Can use all green or all colors for presentation)
2 T brown sugar
2 tsp. salt I don't measure - I taste. Usually does not need the whole 2 t
1 tsp. pepper (I add a little more for flavor and I use white pepper when I cook)
Now I tweaked it by adding garlic (1-2 T) and 2 onions chopped (I like garlic and onions in everything), 3-4 ribs of chopped celery, and small can of tomato paste. Add all ingredients and simmer until all ingredients are tender. Adjust water to your soupiness liking. Salt and Pepper and Hot sauce to taste... Optional: you can add Rotel instead of diced tomatoes for flavor or add a small can of diced chilies for flavor. Or individually at table add hot sauce. Enjoy!!!
