If you saw my Unstuffed Green Peppers recipe you learned that I prefer my green peppers chopped up rather than used as cups. One day here recently I thought that I would try it with a bit more liquid and made it in a soup. It's a nice change up from the casserole style meal.
The canned tomatoes and sauce can be salty it was good to use my homemade broth where I can control the salt. You can use water (which I have done in a pinch and it is still delicious) or use a lower sodium broth.
After eating it as a meal and making lunch portions with what was left there weren't any for the freezer. Next time I will double the recipe and put some away for quick meals. Another afterthought I had was to use the crock pot next time. I'll work on that and update this when I do!
