Foodie Friday ~ Stuffed Green Pepper Soup and Carmel Corn

This soup is quick and easy. A great fall meal. Saute onion, celery, garlic and green pepper in oil until just tender.

Stir in beef.

Add everything else.

Then enjoy:)
Stuffed Pepper Soup
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups chopped green bell pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 (16 ounce) can Hunts Diced Tomato with Basil, Garlic, Oregano
1/2 cup V-8 tomato juice
1/4 cup uncooked white rice
2 cans chicken broth
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons white sugar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Saute onion, celery, garlic and green pepper in oil until just tender. Do not brown. Stir beef into vegetables; cook until beef is browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in rice.
Add tomatoes, juice, water, broth, parsley, sugars, salt and pepper to the browned beef mixture. Cover, and simmer 45 minutes or until rice is cooked. Adjust liquid if necessary. Stir in cinnamon. Taste for seasoning.
Next we have Paula Deen's Carmel Corn.
I popped 3 bags of microwave plain popcorn.

Butter, brown sugar, salt and light corn syrup.

Coat well.

It's ready:)
Carmel Corn
1 cup butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
Over medium heat, combine first four ingredients and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in baking soda. Stir well. Pour over 8 quarts popped corn. Stir to coat well. Bake in large roaster or pan (i used a disposable pan and Pam sprayed it) at 200 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper to dry.

That soup looks so delish! I love green peppers, but alas, it's one of only two things my hubby won't eat. The caramel corn looks yummy!

Mary said...

I was thinking of making kettle corn popcorn for Halloween gifts for my neighbors this year. Can you tell me the brand of the pain popcorn in your recipe? All I can find here is salted and buttered etc. but no plain. I may have to pop the old fashioned way. Isn't it funny how we get so spoiled with all the convenience items for the microwave:)

Joyce ~ Thanks for stopping by. I used Centrella natural flavor microwave popcorn. The box came with 3 packages. I used all three. Use anything with natural flavor. The old fashion way would'nt be all that bad. Hope you find natural flavor. Have fun:)
