1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tabs. minced garlic

To the same pan, add the onions, bellpeppers and celery. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the veggies until tender, about 7 minutes.
Stir in the garlic, paprika, oregano, cayenne and bay leaves, and cook, stirring for about 1 minute. Add the broth, tomatoes and Worchestershire sauce, and bring to a boil.
