Stuffed Pepper Soup Bowl

This blog will contain lots of information, including great recipes that I absolutely love.  If I don’t love it, you won’t see it here!

This recipe comes from my son, Shawn.  He’s very creative, and this one’s from scratch.  Who doesn’t love a recipe that was an awesome accident that turned out fabulous?

Here goes….

You will need for the mashed potato base:

1 Bag of Red potatoes

1 bar (8oz) Neufchatel Cream Cheese

1/2 stick of butter

1 tsp or more Lawry’s Season Salt

Quarter the potatoes and cook in salted water until tender.  Drain and add softened cream cheese and butter.  Beat with mixer until you lose the chunks, and add Lawry’s salt.  Add more if you need it.

For the soup you will need:

1lb ground turkey

1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies

1 jar of spaghetti sauce, 1/2 jar of water

2T worchestershire

1T minced garlic

2 green peppers, chopped

Salt, pepper, garlic, chili seasoning and red pepper flakes (about a teaspoon of each, give or take some)

Saute turkey with the chopped green peppers until cooked through.  Add the seasoning.  Meanwhile, heat your crock pot or stock pot and add the spaghetti sauce with 1/2 jar of water.  Add the tomatoes/green chilies. worchestershire and garlic.  Throw in your meat mixture and stir.  If you’re using a crock pot, heat on low for approximately 5-6 hours.  If you’re using a stock pot, heat on low for about an hour, covered.

To serve, put a couple of large spoonfuls of mashed potatoes, make a lil well and add your stuffed pepper mixture on top.  Garnish with your favorite cheese.  (I used parmesan)

And voila!  You have a delicious, hearty soup served over the creamiest mashed potatoes you’ve ever eaten.

How many does it serve?  My guess would normally be 6, but I like such large helpings, I’m gonna say 4!

Thank you Shawn.  I’ll be making this many many times!

Enjoy!
