Reviews for Stuffed Sweet Pepper Soup
"I sauteed the onions, peppers and celery before adding them to the pot. The chili sauce made it too sweet for my families' taste. I think next time I will omit the chili sauce and it will be much better. Overall, great recipe and I will be making it again!"
"This soup is delicious and full bodied. The only change I make is to substitute chicken broth for the water. I'm sure beef or vegetable broth would also work. I do not add the browning sauce. I think the chili sauce gives it that extra bit of flavor. I have made it several times but tonight I served it with Garlic-Herb Parmesan rolls also from this web site. What a great twosome!"
"My family didn't care for this recipe. The flavor seemed bland to us."
"Surprising flavorful! I only made 1/2 recipe, and it was plenty for family of 4 with leftovers for lunch. Seemed liquidy at first but thickened nicely as the rice cooked."
"Made this today and my family really liked it. I did saute the peppers, onions and celery with the meat. I made half the recipe as it was all I needed. Will be making this again."
"I changed a couple of things out of necessity. I only put 4 cups of water because I only had brown minute rice and omitted the celery because I had none. Left the salt out on purpose to see if it really needed it, which it doesn't for us or the couple that I served it to. They liked it so much I emailed the recipe to them before they went home! Definitely a keeper with my substitutions."
"If you cook it with the rice in it, sure it makes it thicker.... but in the winter months it's more of a "Stuffed Pepper-STOUP" Thick and Hearty, serve with crusty bread and OH MY !!!!!!!"
"Excellent, tasty and very easy to make. Will be making again and again."
"Delicious. I have fixed this twice and it is becoming a family favorite!"
"Delicious!!!!!! I used multi colored peppers to give it a more colorful look, used V8 instead of tomato juice and skipped the bouillon and chicken broth. Thanks for sharing."
