Reviews for Unstuffed Pepper Soup
"I love stuffed peppers, but when I make them we eat the stuffing and usually leave most of the pepper on the plate! So this soup is perfect--the peppers are much easier to eat when bite-sized. The flavor is amazing, especially in the summer when the veggies are so fresh. I add a teaspoon of garlic powder and either a teaspoon of red pepper flakes or a drained can of rotel tomatoes. I also add 2 cups of frozen corn. And I simmer the soup for an hour. We just had "SOUP there it is!" day at work, and everyone said it was delicious!"
"When I told my husband what I was making for diner he made a face. Once he tried it he loved this soup. Very easy to make, and it does taste just like stuff peppers. it is a new favorite in our house."

"Just finished a bowl of this wonderful soup * It does taste like a stuffed pepper. I cut back on the amount of tomatoes by one can.Love the taste and rough texture that this one offers * I used Sausage instead of ground meat. That is what I had on hand. Did I mention the smell ? Divine. Made it for dinner, ate it for lunch !JanieTaste Of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
"This soup taste just like stuffed peppers, but is much easier to make! It has the perfect amount of flavor. My kids loved it!"
"I forgot to put the tomato soup in and my mom and I thought it was the best soup ever. Next time I make it I'll make it the same way. I used one yellow pepper, added salt and cooked meat and rinsed in hot water before adding it to the cooking peppers and onions."
"I made this for a Family get together and every one loved it. It was the first empty pot."
"This soup is amazing!!!! My kids are asking for it everyday. I started to make it after my sister and my kids love it!!!!!!!"
"Good and easy! I did add a little minced garlic and a little salt and pepper."
"Love this soup! I make it at least once a month. I do omit the mushrooms since I don't like them. Other than that the only thing I changed was adding 4 minced garlic cloves and pepper."
"I love this soup. I did add garlic and black pepper the second time I made it though. This is part of my regular menu rotation."
"We love this soup so much that last summer we canned about 20 quarts of it--mostly with ingrediants from our garden. It tastes so good on a cold winter night--especially when all you have to do is make up some rice in the microwave and stir it in!! A quick and delicious dinner!!"
"Very easy to make! A great way to use up the peppers from my garden. Everyone loved it!"
"Next time I will mix up the peppers a bit - red, yellow, etc. All that green pepper was a bit too much for me. I will also add salt.It got much more thicker than the photo also, but who cares as long as it's good? :)"
