Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup

 I love this time of year and soup always delivers the warmth and comfort I'm looking for.  Here is an easy soup that tastes like stuffed peppers.  The soup is stuffed with ground beef, bell peppers, onions, rice and a rich tomato beef broth.  A full meal in one bowl, great with some warm bread.

1 lb ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2  cups green or red bell pepper, chopped (I used both)
6 cups beef broth (48 oz)
1 (14.5) can tomato sauce
1 (14.5) can petite diced diced tomatoes (undrained)
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice 
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. In a large pot brown beef and onions over medium high heat. Drain off any fat.
2. Add the peppers to the browned meat and saute for 3 minutes.
3. Stir in the beef broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes with juice, brown sugar, rice, salt and pepper.   Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 50 minutes.  

Serves:  8-10
