MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 8, 2015

"Very delicious. I used 2 pounds of ground beef and saut?ed the onion, celery and peppers together with the beef. I also cooked the rice separately like a reader suggested."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2015

"The flavor of the soup was good but the peppers and celery were still crunchy. Next time I would saute the peppers and celery with the meat to soften them. Also, the rice thickened the soup a lot. Next time I might cook it by itself and add later."

"Very good flavors! Did not have browning sauce so omitted it and added a can of diced tomatoes. Served with a warm french bread crusty loaf. Really good soup!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 19, 2015

"Very good soup and a very good way to use up the trio of colored peppers I picked up at Aldi's for an unbelieveably low price. I used all home-canned tomato juice instead of the water and used my own home-canned chili sauce and brown rice. A very nice and tasty meal on a cold winter's night. I served it along with homemade corn bread made in an iron skillet."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2015

"I used two pounds of ground beef for more heartiness. I also added a large chopped zucchini and two cans of beans - one chili and one northern. I used an Asian sweet chili sauce as that is what I had on hand. Yum!"
