I am a stuffed pepper and also a soup fanatic, so this is a great way to get both in one. To me it's much easier than stuffing the peppers.

This soup is amazing! It smells and tastes just like stuffed peppers. When cooking, people will think you have stuffed peppers baking in the oven. The addition of V8 adds to the flavor. Next time I make this, I'm going to double the recipe! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
