I'm one of those people who likes to play with recipes and test them on my friends and family.
My mouth is watering even as I write this recipe. This stuffed pepper soup will not disappoint. Of the five soups at the neighborhood soup nights we hosted, this was the one I got the most recipe requests for. It is delicious and rich and hearty, and extremely easy to make. Even my husband, who does not eat stuffed peppers, regularly requests this soup.
If you are one of those people who likes to play with recipes, this is a fun one to experiment with. You can add more or different spices, according to your preferences. You can also cook the rice inside the slow cooker for more of a stew/goulash-type meal.
