Stuffed Pepper Soup

Search no further for your go-to soup recipe! I guarantee  you’ll love this one. And it’s another one-pot wonder! If you can’t tell I get a little excited about meals that only require one pot for cooking–the fewer dishes, the better. But seriously, how can you go wrong with that? Anyways, please enjoy. And also, I wish you a very happy and healthy New Year! 

Sincerely,

Bean đŸ˜‰
