Funny how you remember these random details from your childhood. I’ve noticed my memories often have something to do with food – either the everyday meals we had, or the special treats that we didn’t get often. I’m not sure which category would be better for stuffed bell peppers (probably neither), but I remember us having them just once. It was a regular weeknight meal, nothing fancy, but somehow it was special at least for me.
I loved bell peppers and we had them all the time, but mostly just chopped and mixed into salads, or on a sandwich. For some reason that is the only time I remember Mom serving them. I guess the rest of the family didn’t enjoy it as much as I did!
Anyway, that memory immediately came back to me when I saw this recipe. But this isn’t your regular stuffed bell pepper recipe! This time it has been turned into a hearty soup – familiar flavors served in a new way. The best part is; the slow cooker is going to do all the work for you!
