Stuffed Pepper Soup

Soup is just “in” right now, soup recipes are by far my most popular lately. So, at least I’m not the only one who seriously loves a good soup recipe, and this Stuffed Pepper Soup recipe is no exception.

I just got into the whole stuffed pepper thing and I have actually been meaning to make this stuffed pepper inspired soup for that last month. There are just far too many different kinds of soups to choose from and there are still countless more I want to make.

This one is incredibly hearty and it’s just such a comforting, homestyle soup. It totally reminded me of growing up and being home.

I love all the flavors in this soup and how well they all meld together. The peppers offer a mellow and faintly sweet flavor, while the tomatoes and beef kick in that flavor that will remind you of a traditional stuffed pepper.  And the rice in this soup gives it such a great texture and adds some body to it.

Ingredient For Making This Stuffed Pepper Soup

  • ground beef
  • bell peppers
  • onions
  • diced tomatoes
  • tomato sauce
  • beef broth
  • parsley

  • oregano
  • white or brown rice

Top Tips For Making Stuffed Pepper Soup

  1. For a thinner soup don’t add all of the rice and for a thicker heartier soup add it all.
  2. Also, if you plan on having it for leftovers the next day then don’t add the rice to the pot of soup, just add it to each individual bowl, then reserve the rice in a separate container in the refrigerator to add to the soup the next day (otherwise it would turn into mush).

This a fairly thick soup and it has a consistency similar to a stew, which I love because it will fill my family up and I don’t have to make a bunch of sides to serve with it. I just served it with fresh bread to keep that homestyle comfort and simplicity going.

At least once a week we are having soup around here, if you haven’t noticed. This Stuffed Pepper Soup will have you wanting it weekly as well!

Enjoy!

    • Jaclyn: I’m so happy to hear that! And yes I could be made in the slow cooker, but you’d still want to saute the onion and garlic and brown the beef first. August 22, 2018 at 5:26pm Reply
