This fresh and delicious soup has the best flavor. If your family is a fan of sweet and sour, they will love this recipe. Grocery stores sometimes sell yellow, red, and green bell peppers packaged as 'Stoplight Peppers', at a reduced price.

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours, 25 minutes

  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 8 oz. can pineapple tidbits, undrained

I love sweet and sour flavors so I wasn't surprised that I love this. It was so easy to make. One warning: the soup is really hot and should cool down for a few minutes before serving. I poured it into a tureen and let it sit for a bit before we all dug in.
