Souper Bowl

My friend, Francine, shared this different and delicious soup recipe with me recently.  I knew she was bringing it for a carry-in at school today, therefore I was anxious to try a bowl.  Francine discovered this Stuffed Green Pepper Soup at another school’s carry-in and sought out the recipe.  I’m so glad she did!  I made this tonight for a “girl’s night out” and it was enjoyed by all.  My results were a little different, but the taste was the same. I decreased the green peppers by one.  I did this because my audience was not as crazy about green peppers and they suggested that I not put as many in.  I chopped the green peppers and Francine put small chunks in her soup.  I really don’t have a preference between the two.  My soup was a little too thick compared to Francine’s which had more liquid. I will definitely ask her what she might have done differently.  Overall…a great soup that I will make again.
