I just made "Christmas Leftover Soup" this morning, with the help of my PC. I took 5 little sweet peppers, a cup-n-a-half of turkey broth (that I'd gotten from a friend), 1 onion, a about five slices each of pepperoni, summer sausage, and very good hard salami. I quartered all of the meat slices, and put them in the pot with everything else. I then added about 3 tbs. pearl barley, and 1/2 tsp. ground thyme, and freshly ground black pepper.
It took me a total of 30 minutes to make this soup. It was just, plain, yummy.
Your peppers would work in the soup as well.
