Easy - for beginners
The Mason Jar restaurant, in Colorado Springs serves the best Stuffed Green Pepper Soup. After tasting the delicious soup I asked if I could get the recipe. The waitress had copies of the recipe tucked away in her apron and was happy to share it.
In large Dutch oven, brown beef and drain. Add tomato sauce, tomatoes, rice, peppers, sugar, salt, black pepper, garlic and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, stir in beef base. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 30-40 minutes or until peppers are tender. Add 6 cups of water and bring back to a boil.
Ladle into bowls and serve.
