My Mom's Stuffed Pepper Soup Just Replaced My Love For Regular Stuffed Peppers

I spent a few nights a week in middle school popping pre-stuffed peppers in the oven for a quick dinner after ball games. Green pepper sliced open and chocked full of oozing beef, chopped tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. It was one of my favorites.

When I heard the word "stuffed pepper soup" this past spring, I thought someone was talking about putting the ingredients into the pepper, soup-style. You know, like pouring chicken broth in and dumping in some beef chunks.

Surely, I was confused. How would you cut into that? Do you use the pepper as a cup and then drink? Wouldn't the pepper get hot? Or would it leak? And how would you get a mouthful of the fresh pepper with the savory meat?

It turns out stuffed pepper soup is a thick chili recipe, tomato-based, served with white rice and seasoned with brown sugar. It's not what I expected but, when I found a recipe of my mom's, I was not disappointed!

I enjoy this more than stuffed green peppers now.
