Just like Stuffed Bell Peppers just in a soup version. You can also make as a casserole by just using less water and melting cheese on top. Recipe fills a quart jar if for future use. ** Note for filling your jar meal. Start with the ground beef then add the tomato powder. Add all your seasonings, onions, rice, ending with the bell peppers. Here is a short video to show building your jar meal.
