It's easy to make, and very versatile, you could put anything in it really. The whole family loved it. The cool thing about this recipe, is that it was a wonderful summer soup, but would also be great in the winter months too. You could sub some cabbage in place of the squash!
I think next time, I might try chicken and rice in the soup, instead of ground beef. I served it with crushed tortilla chips and sour cream.
Here's my version, have fun creating your own!
Squash & Pepper Soup
1 lb of Ground Beef
2 Green Bell Peppers
