I like a really meaty Stuffed Pepper Soup so I start with 2 pounds of ground beef. Brown it, drain the grease off, and add the onions and peppers. Cook them down until they start to get soft and then add canned tomatoes, 2 beef bouillon cubes, water, some brown sugar for a hint of sweetness, and a few dried herbs for flavor.
I like to add the rice in just before serving or it tends to soak up too much liquid.
Serve with some crusty bread or Saltines crackers and you have yourself a meal!
