"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."
