Fall is here! Fall is here!! We went from 9o degree days to cool, breezy 60s. Which means one thing: IT’S SOUP SEASON!!!! This stuffed pepper soup is one of my favorites and I can’t believe I haven’t posted it until now! Remember my deconstructed stuffed peppers? Well, this is basically the soup version. And it is oh-so-delicious. It has sausage, brown long grain rice, tons of peppers, tomato juice, and chili sauce to give it that classic stuffed pepper taste. But, probably the best part? It’s a one pot meal! Once you cook the sausage in your soup pot, you add all of your other ingredients and basically forget about it for an hour. That’s my favorite type of recipe.
I really should take better advantage of my crock pot. I am trying out some new crock pot recipes after an awesome request from a reader. I am working on some more, I promise! I honestly got hooked on the crock pot after this recipe and it was one of those a-ha moments like “why have I never taken advantage of this before??” So, with that said, there will be more in the crock pot series coming up! Today’s recipe is for vegetarian fajita mix! It is bell peppers, onions, black and pinto beans, corn, and salsa. So good, so easy, and so adaptable! We made ours into quesadillas and they were delicious. But, you could easily turn these into burritos, put it over rice, and you guessed it … fajitas!
