MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2015

"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!"

"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 !!!!!!!"

"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."

"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

"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."

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2015

"I was pleasantly surprised with this soup. I prepared as directed; directions indicated 10 minutes of prep time but it took me double that. No big deal, though, because this soup went together quickly and easily. I simmered it a little over an hour in order to allow enough time for the celery to be less crunchy. Flavor was wonderful; soup is healthy and low calorie, which is good because it's so tasty that you'll be tempted to have seconds...or thirds.... :)"
