Bell pepper soup

Bell pepper soup is tasty, healthy, and can even be spicy too! Here's a recipe for a spicy bell pepper soup, although you can adjust the spice level to suit your own taste.

But which color bell pepper to choose?

Bell peppers are nutritious, rich in fiber, and low in calories. But what’s the difference between the colors? A red pepper contains more Vitamin C than a green pepper, and tastes sweeter. Green peppers have a more bitter taste. An orange pepper is somewhere in between. Pick your own favorite colors for this recipe, but a little tip: too many green peppers may create a bit of a murky mess, so choose your peppers carefully!
