In a large stockpot, brown hamburger and onion until burger is no longer pink. Drain. Return to stockpot and add broth, crushed tomatoes, tomato juice and whole green pepper. Bring to a boil, boil for 5 minutes. Turn heat down to low, cover, simmer for 30-35 minutes. Remove whole green pepper and discard.

  • With the price of peppers, I think you'd better chop all the peppers and serve them as part of the dish or just don't use the pepper you are instructed to discard. That discarded pepper is such a waste or money and nutrients. (We like more green pepper in stews and soups at my house and can't imagine committing the waste.

  • I made this soup and it was WONDERFUL. Everyone loved the idea that you could add as much rice as you wanted. It could be like spanish rice, or it could be soup. I was even called a genius when I shared it with coworkers!

  • This was a very good recipe, but next time I make it I'm going to experiment with a little more seasonings. But good as is also. :D
