This is an excellent example of how convenience foods can be combined for a tasty entree. Ready in minutes when I get home from work, this soup becomes part of a balanced meal with a tossed salad, rolls or fruit. For variation, try chicken, turkey or even venison instead of ground beef. –Tracy Thompson, Cranesville, Pennsylvania

"This soup is fantastic! I use 2 cups of prepared minute rice instead of the packaged variety. I freeze mine after preparing it in individual freezer containers for lunches at work. Often I get inquiries about the wonderful smelling soup I have for lunch."

"this soup is sooo awesome !!!!! everyone who loves stuffed peppers needs to try this soup!!! I had to change almost everything but it was only because it was what I had on hand and I really wanted to try it and it turned out fantastic... I used ground sausage rather then hamburger, used two cans of diced tomatoes with garlic, basil and oregano, one I just left as is the other I put into the food processor to make a sauce like consistency, used 3 medium fresh green peppers chopped, 2 cups of beef broth, and I had about 1/3 of a jar of jarred pasta sauce (leftover from a dinner I had earlier in the week figured why waste it !) and a bunch of spices including bay leaves!!! turned out great I regret not making more to freeze, oh n I didn't put the rice right in the pot incase I wanted to freeze it but there isn't any left!!!! try it you wont be sorry!!!"
