One of my friends made this for our cooking club and I’ve been making it ever since.It was one of my moms favorite before she passed and the only thing I changed was leaving out the mushrooms.I usually make cornbread to go with it. It also freezes well.

My family LOVES this soup! We love mushrooms, but I omit them in this recipe. I have also made it with uncooked instant rice and it turned out great! I also use any color peppers.

Omitted the mushrooms as they are not needed. Added the seasonings I would add when I make stuffed peppers and it was really good. Leftovers are AMAZING since the flavors blended overnight. Keeper.

I have made this recipes a lot, as I have a garden and tons of peppers. This is a great 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!

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
