Stuffed Red/Green Pepper Soup

Mary A


Here's a different twist on stuffed pepper soup with V-8 juice and chicken stock, not the traditional tomato sauce and beef stock. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or some of your favorite shredded cheese. Add a piece of corn bread on the side and you'll be warm this winter!

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook rice and set aside. Brown ground chuck and pork. Drain and set aside.
With a little olive oil, saute onions in a soup pot or dutch oven. Add chopped peppers; saute for a few minutes so they are still firm. Add chopped garlic towards the end (so it doesn't burn). Add diced tomatoes.
Mix together the chicken stock, brown sugar and worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Add this mixture to pot.
Add V-8 juice and rice.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to a boil. Simmer for 25 - 30 minutes.
