I like convenience, so I used jarred peppers. If you have time to roast the peppers, it would be even better. I also use leftover rotisserie chicken. When we buy a rotisserie chicken from the deli, my family never wants the meat on the bottom so I shred it and use it in soup later.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We loved the richness of this cream of roasted red pepper chicken soup. It's thick and creamy with fresh flavor. Roasted red peppers add a touch of smokiness to this homemade soup, but it's not overpowering. Shredded chicken makes the soup hearty and a great meal.
