I have to tell you...This is so easy and so delicious, you have to try it! Think of a de-constructed stuffed pepper made into a soup! This soup is rich and hearty and tastes just like a stuffed pepper, and I love stuffed peppers! My Mom made them a lot when I was growing up and this soup has that same great homemade yumminess you expect from a stuffed pepper! Happy Fall Y'all!
