  • Pour soup mixture over peppers.
  • Cover with tight fitting lid and bring to a gentle boil. Boil gently about 15 minutes and reduce heat to simmer.
  • Continue cooking for 1 hour. Peppers should be done but let sit in liquid another half hour with lid on and heat off.
  • With large spoon lift peppers out of pot and arrange on dinner plates.

I serve these with a vegetable and some warm Italian bread with butter to slather on it. Yum yum. With these peppers you have your meat and starch all together.
