Sweet Pepper Soup

I was craving fresh soup a few nights ago so I came up with this Sweet Pepper Soup recipe.   I was going to make my typical stuffed pepper soup but I wanted something more creamy.    This soup tastes fantastic with fresh sweet peppers, and it’s absolutely gorgeous to loook at!

The recipe calls 1.5 pounds of sweet peppers and 1 jalapeno pepper. The jalapeno pepper adds a tiny bit of kick, but not too much heat at all.  In fact, even with the jalapeno pepper, this soup is completely family friend for adults and kids.

This soup is delicious, definitely a year round favorite especially in the Fall months when we’re craving a big bowl of soup!   It’s the perfect soup to use up a overabundance of peppers if you have them too!

If you have any leftovers (I doubt you will – it’s that good!) you can easily freeze this soup to serve later on.  We love this soup so much I will often make 2 batches – one to serve for dinner, and one to freeze.

I love beans in my chili so I had to add both black beans and kidney beans.  Also I love using ground turkey for chili as a healthy alternative to ground beef.

So what makes this Chili Mexican? Well we’re going to spice it up with green chiles, salsa verde, cumin and we’re going to throw corn into this!  If you want you can even throw avocado, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream on top when it’s done!

Growing up one of my Mother’s favorite meals to make was stuffed peppers.  She sure loved making those.  Whenever I go back to visit my father I always ask him to think of a meal or two he wants me to make for him and usually always one of his favorites are Mother’s stuffed peppers.

Stuffed Pepper Casserole Recipe

With so many green peppers growing in the garden I wanted to take my usual stuffed pepper recipe but turn it into Stuffed Pepper Casserole.  I wanted it have the original taste, but I wanted to throw some more greens in there like spinach.  

Plus it’s a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies, almost without them realizing it. Growing your own veggies is a great way to get anyone excited about veggies. Plus, they taste so much better than store-bought! Start with organic plants and you’ll have your own inexpensive supple of organic veggies to fill your meals.

How to Make Diced Green Chiles

Did you come here because you wanted to make your OWN diced green chiles, just like the canned chiles you buy in the supermarket? Well you’re in luck, because this is going to walk you through how to make them!  And even better, they’re so EASY to make!

homemade diced green chiles

The past year we became obsessed with canned diced green chiles, you know those 4 oz canned peppers?  You’re probably familiar with the Oretega or Old El Paso brands!  We put them in enchiladas, tacos, casseroles, stews and more.   We were buying a few cans a week when it hit me – we should be growing them!

What type of peppers are canned diced green chiles?

So I did some investigating to figure out what type of peppers they are, and turns out they’re Anaheim peppers.    More specifically, we grow the “Highlander” variety of Anaheims.  These plants are super high in productivity.  I’m not kidding, grow 2 plants and you might be set for the season! 

We have 6 plants growing and now I have a dedicated drawer in the refrigerator to these peppers!  The plants grow about the average height of a bell pepper plant, but there’s just endless peppers in sight!   We’re so amazed by their yield we’ll be growing them every year now!

Do you guys know about Joe’s Special?  It’s a dish that started in San Francisco in the 1920s that consisted of eggs, ground beef, spinach and garlic.   A few places make their own version, including a Brooklyn based restaurant that my husband fell in love with.  I wanted to try a modern spin on it, removing the spinach and replacing it with green beans and peppers. The result is a delicious Scrambled Egg and Ground Beef Casserole!

This lasagna is filled with veggies that go perfect with the “Mexican” flavor.   Most vegetarian lasagna recipes use eggplant and zucchini but I don’t.  Why?  That’s easy.  We don’t grow those vegetables, hah.  Case closed.  Instead I use the veggies that are grown in our garden to make this as fresh as possible.  There’s kale, tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion and black beans stacked inside 3 layers of lasagna noodles, alongside ricotta and mozzarella cheese.

45 Minute Vegetarian Chili

Delicious Vegetarian Chili made in 45 minutes that even meat eaters will love!

Last weekend we had some pretty amazing chili for lunch on the land.  The chili was filling, tasty with great spices and had that very important texture that ground meat gives in dishes.  The thing is though, this was vegetarian chili.  After I exclaimed for the 20th time how great this chili was (everyone agreed – vegetarians and meat eaters) I then made it my goal to make similar style homemade chili.  This 45 Minute Vegetarian Chili recipe was born!

Delicious Vegetarian Chili made in 45 minutes that even meat eaters will love!

Vegetarian Chili Recipe

The chili is made up vegetables: tomatoes, bell pepper, corn, carrot, jalapeno and diced green chilies.  Now comes the beans: black and kidney beans.  There’s plenty of spices: garlic, bay leaf, cumin, oregano, chili powder salt and pepper.      We’re going to give it that texture that ground meat gives it with meatless crumbles.

 If you’re a meat eater and you’re thinking “yuck” you better check yourself because these are good (I promise!).   It has the same texture consistency of meat while being tasty.  I recommend using Neat or Morningstar brands for crumbles.    Matthew (husband) is a meat and potatoes guy. His dream meal is a pot roast with mashed potatoes and he even says how good this recipe is, so you can trust me (and him).
