Unstuffed Pepper Soup

One of my sisters gave me the recipe for this quick-and-easy soup that tastes just like stuffed green peppers. The thick hearty mixture is chock-full of good stuff. Plus, the aroma while it's cooking is wonderful. —Evelyn Kara, Brownsville, Pennsylvania

    Recipe says to add the rice but there is no rice in the list if ingredients. How much rice should be used in this recipe?

    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.
