I had stuffed pepper soup a few months ago at work. A co-worker brought in a large crock-pot full of it on a cold day and it was wonderful. I asked for the recipe and have had it lying around the house every since. It's been getting cold again and I've been thinking about the stuffed pepper soup. I dug up the recipe and put it in the crock-pot.
