I thought I'd save some time by simply adding the rice to the soup & letting it cook in the absorbed all the liquid, and the recipe isn't soup anymore! It turned out more like a stew, and has an absolutely wonderful taste! I may not ever make regular stuffed peppers again!

Was pretty good but I like my Stuffed Pepper Casserole better.

Wonderful stuff! If I could give this 10 stars, i would. I made a few changes and it came out tasting exactly like stuffed peppers. I did not use sage,my opinion is sage does not belong in this dish. I did use 1 tsp oregano,1 tsp basil, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp accent. I also cooked the rice in the mixture and used 1/2 beef broth too. It did come out very thick but that is how we like it. Next time i will add a small can of tomato paste because i like more of a tomato flavor. I did not add taco seasoning like others did. Next time i will try this with cabbage. Thanks for the great recipe.

Such an AWESOME recipe!! I add a little twist to mine though. Even though I cook my rice first before adding it to the mix, I do find there is quite a bit of absorption of the juice, taking away from the soup. So what I do is add, depending on the quantity I am making, a few cans of beef broth. I think using the beef, with the chicken broth, adds a little compliment to the entire mix making a great meld of flavors! Using the extra broth keeps this soup, just what it is, soup and not a rice mush.

My husband first tasted stuffed pepper soup in a resturant and we both loved it. I checked and found this one and feel like I hit a jackpot. It is not only very easy to prepare but it tastes just like we had. Thank you for sharing your recipes. I have also given this recipe to 7 co-workers. All of them are coming back with rave reviews.Gail B

I have to tell you a secret--I don't like bell peppers-at all. Period. I decided to try this recipe because my other half loves stuffed peppers. I added more minced garlic when I was sweating the onions and it was tasty! This recipe does not have the overpowering taste of bell peppers and I love that. After I added the rice I had to add more liquid because the rice soaked it up, but that's ok! The day after it's good too. It's more of a goulash consistency, but oh so yummy. My family LOVES this recipe! Thank you!

I just made this soup but I changed some of the ingred. and made it a 5 star according to my husband. Used 1 lb. free-range ground chicken plus 1/2 lb. ground round. Also added celery and garlic with the onions and peppers. I used 3 orange and yellow peppers instead of green. I also used 1/2 carton organic beef broth and 3/4 carton organic chicken broth and 2 cans of diced tomatoes coarsely pureed. I added organic brown uncooked rice after the above came to a boil and simmered it for 45 minutes or so. Then I added several spices. My family raved about it and said I could make it anytime! I probably just about doubled the recipe as stated.

LOVED IT. I agree that I wanted a tad more flavor than the seasonings indicated - so I added a splash of red wine, some garlic and basil as well as a little worcestershire sauce when I was browning the meat. None of my personal seasoning decisions make this less than as written - I just wanted it to have a bit more kick. Thanks for the recipe!
