I was craving fresh soup a few nights ago so this Sweet Pepper Soup was born~  I was going to make my typical stuffed pepper soup but I wanted something more creamy.    This soup tastes fantastic with fresh (and oh so pretty!) sweet peppers.   We are also using 1 jalapeno pepper in this soup to give it a itty bitty kick.    To give the soup a little more bite, we throw some rice in at the very end.  This soup is delicious, definitely a year round favorite!

It’s the perfect soup to use up a overabundance of garden peppers up in!  It also freezes amazing so you you could make a few batches of it if you want to save some for the Winter too!  Even though this soup calls for sweet peppers, if you want to do a mixture of sweet and bell peppers that will taste delicious too! I often do it in the Summer with our garden peppers.

This soup is filling and best served warm.   I love adding croutons or crusty Italian bread to the soup!
