Stuffed Sweet Pepper Soup

We can almost live on soup in the winter and this is a very comforting soup on a cold day. I love stuffed peppers and this recipe combines all those flavors into a delicious soup.
 I normally make it with rice but decided to try Quinoa this time and it worked great. Adjust the amount of tomato juice and water to your liking to make it thinner or thicker.

Stuffed Sweet Pepper Soup

1 1/2 pound hamburger
1 quart tomato juice
1 quart water
1 12oz bottle chili sauce
3 medium green or red sweet peppers, diced
2 celery ribs, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice, may substitute quinoa
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp celery salt

1. Saute onions and garlic in a little butter.
2. Fry hamburger until no longer pink and drain.
3. Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
4. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until rice is tender.


  1. That sounds wonderful, Pearl. Thanks... Think we'll try that soup. We love soups in the winter also.

    Thought about you when we were in the Smokies last week. Hiked in Tremont and also in Greenbriar. The water was really high... SO pretty...

  2. Oh Pearl that looks so yummy. What a great dish for a winters day. Making me hungry girl. LOL!

  3. That looks really good! I found you on the Clever Chicks Hop and I would love to have you join the fun on my Creative HomeAcre Hop!

    Hope to see you there!
