I found this at Chaos in the Kitchen. You know, I am still kind of on the fence about bell peppers, but there are certain dishes where they are so delicious. This is just such a dish. Leftovers of this are fantastic!!

Stuffed Pepper Soup

1 lb ground beef
½ onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 lb red, orange, yellow and green bell peppers (about 3 large), diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 oz) can diced or crushed tomatoes
2 C water or low sodium beef broth
1 tbsp beef base or 1 cube beef bouillon
salt and pepper to taste
about 2-3 C cooked rice (I use brown

In a large stock pot, crumble ground beef and stir in onion, celery, peppers, and garlic. Heat over high to brown beef and sweat and soften the vegetables, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, beef stock or water, and beef base. Simmer 15 minutes or longer until ready to serve. Taste and season with salt and fresh ground pepper. Serve with rice.
