Figuring out the Soup Recipe
I first had this in a cafeteria at school. I was a bit skeptical at first, but I gave it a try. See, it pays to try something new once in a while. I liked it so much, I recreated the recipe at home. It did take me a few tries, but i think the recipe I created tastes very similar to what I had and when I do make this sweet pepper soup, it does not last for long. I would bet that even your most picky eater will east this. It is a very satisfying soup.
Our cold winters here call for soups all winter long. I work long hours so I try to have a soup available for the family to heat up. I don’t have to worry so much about if they have something good to eat. This is much better than grabbing chips or something else similar.
This tiny cup below is my little taste before I feed the crowd.
Sweet Pepper Soup
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 4-5 Lbs. hamburger I prefer ground chuck
- 10 3/4 oz tomato soup I prefer Campbell’s
- 14.5 oz diced tomatoes not drained, pour the whole can in, or cut up fresh
- 2 ribs celery diced
- 1/2 medium yellow onion diced
- 1 tsp garlic minced
- 1 lbs. sweet peppers diced-can be any kind of bell pepper, mini pepper
- 16 oz chicken stock I had some in the freezer and used that
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup rice
- water enough to fill kettle
- Brown the hamburger in the oil
- When the hamburger is about ½ browned, add the celery, onion, sweet peppers, and garlic.
- Once the hamburger is browned, the vegetables will be about done too; add the tomato soup, diced tomatoes, chicken stock, sugar, rice, and salt and pepper to taste.
- Add water to the desired thickness of the soup Add water to the desired thickness of the soup
- Bring to a boil and turn off heat; keeping pan covered. The rice will complete cooking in the hot soup in about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
