mmm what could be better on a cold day than soup? And what’s better than soup? Soup that isn’t really soupy, but more like a chili-type thing. Also: TOPPED WITH CHEESE.
This is a recipe for Stuffed Pepper Soup that I got from my mom. It’s ridiculously simple and amazingly delicious. And it makes a huge amount, so I hope you’re hungry!
The ingredients: onion, green bell pepper, tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, rice, water, salt, pepper, parsley, and brown sugar.
Oh. And ground beef.
Start by browning the ground beef in a skillet. I usually add some black pepper and maybe a bit of salt or garlic if you have it, just something to flavor the meat while it cooks.
While the meat is getting going, dice the peppers.
And do the same with the onion.
Once it’s cooked through, drain the beef and add it to a large pot. Add the peppers and onions, along with the crushed tomatoes.
Add the can of tomato sauce…
And then the rice. I use brown rice, but you can use whatever kind your little heart desires.
Next up is some water.
Add some black pepper.
And some parsley, salt, and brown sugar.
Stir it up real good!
And bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for about an hour.
Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese because… well, why not? We also sometimes eat it with tortilla chips, almost like a dip. It’s yummy that way.
