This is my version of a soup we enjoyed at a restaurant. With green, red and yellow peppers, it's so colorful. I like to serve this slightly spicy soup with grilled cheese sandwiches. - Debbie Fails, Neenah, Wisconsin

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 each large green, sweet red and yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 can (46 ounces) V8 juice
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large saucepan, cook the beef, peppers and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Pepper Soup already has some zip form the cayenne pepper. But if you like foods even hotter, stir in some chopped jalapeno peppers.
