Philadelphia Pepper Soup
gary, you might like to try this recipe (i'm at a loss for attribution, 
it's not 
one of mine-other than some 'tweaking', sorry): 
 
philadelphia pepper soup (12 + servings): 
 
3 medium  potatoes, peeled & sliced
5 - 6   green bell peppers, sliced (possibly 7 if small)
  reserve extra sliced rounds for garnish
  several sprigs parsley for garnish
1 Tbsp  coarse, black pepper for garnish
1/2 lb.  small white onions, sliced
  1 qt chicken stock
4 Tbsp  butter
1/4 tsp  salt
1/4 tsp  pepper
1/4 tsp  nutmeg
1 - 2 cup  half & half
 
combine potatoes, green peppers and onions in saucepan. add chicken stock 
to cover. bring to boil, reduce heat, partially cover, until tender 
(about 15 minutes). puree above mixture (reserve some potatoes) in food 
processor and return to saucepan. note: the potatoes are the thickener - 
add to processor until mixture is fairly thick, the cream, when added, 
will thin it down again. (needs lots of peppers - their flavor is mild. 
too many potatoes will ruin the soup.) add remaining ingredients except 
cream and coarse ground pepper. simmer, stirring often until soup is 
warm. (add chicken stock as required if thickens too much for desired 
consistency). fold in cream (or half & half) and re-heat slowly. when 
heated, serve garnish with slice of bell pepper/parsley. sprinkle chopped 
black pepper lightly on top before serving. can make this one day in 
advance. refrigerate. leave out cream until warming for dinner. must 
serve right after warming - cream can cause separation and scum on top if 
re-warmed and not stirred. 
 
i served this as the soup course for a christmas dinner in '93 and it was 
a hit. my notes say i served a white wine w/ this course, but i can't find 
info on the wine. anyway, it's very filling, quite delicious, and somewhat 
unique. we preceded the soup course w/ an iced stolichnaya 'salute' and 
caviar on toasted sourdough bread points. extra toast points were served 
with the soup.
