Stuffed Pepper Soup


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!

Stuffed Pepper Soup | Cooking Classy

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.

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.

Stuffed Pepper Soup

5 from 17 votes

Yield: About 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil , divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped (1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper (a little over 1/2 of a medium)
  • 3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5) can beef broth
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley , plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white or brown rice (I've tried and like both)
  • Cheddar or mozzarella cheese , for serving (optional)


  1. In a large pot heat 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat, once hot add beef to pot and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally while breaking up beef, until browned. Drain beef and pour onto a plate lined with paper towels, set aside.
  2. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in pot then add onions, red bell pepper, green bell pepper and saute 3 minutes, then add garlic and saute 30 seconds longer. Pour in diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth and add parsley, basil, oregano and cooked beef, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring just to a light boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes.
  3. While soup simmers, prepare rice according to directions listed on package, then once soup is done simmering stir in desired amount of cooked rice into soup*. Serve warm topped with optional cheese and garnish with fresh parsley.
  4. *For a thinner soup don't add all of the rice and for a thicker heartier soup add it all. 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 refrigerator to add to the soup the next day (otherwise it would turn into mush).

  • Anna: I use a can of Italian style petite diced tomatoes instead of the spices + the plain tomatoes. I also buy the frozen colored pepper and onion blend (either Birds Eye brand or Kroger brand) to make this dish extra easy. This is a staple soup in our home. :) You can even add Worchester sauce if you like that flavor from stuffed peppers. October 13, 2014 at 12:13pm Reply

  • Anna: I forgot to say… if you want to make with chicken or ground turkey, you can make this with chicken broth instead of the beef broth. October 13, 2014 at 12:15pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That could work but I’d probably add in some sort of protein like black beans or something. November 27, 2014 at 1:08am Reply

  • Holly: Does this freeze well? November 4, 2014 at 10:28pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I haven’t tried so I can’t say for sure, I think it would as long as you don’t have the rice in it or that will get mushy. November 4, 2014 at 10:35pm Reply

  • Megan: This looks delicious! Making it tonight, odd question, but do you drain the canned tomatoes or keep the liquid? November 17, 2014 at 5:30pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Not an odd question I used to wonder that about recipes too :), unless a recipes specifies to drain the tomatoes then leave it, so for this one leave it. I hope you love it! November 17, 2014 at 5:36pm Reply

  • Nur: i made this dish for my family tonite and everyone loved it!! Thank you!!! December 29, 2014 at 11:53pm Reply

  • Anthony: I used half ground Turkey and half ground buffalo as the meat. Diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery and onion instead of the plain diced tomatoes. Leftover beef consume from our crock pot beef roast. The best decision was to COOK THE RICE IN THE SOUP :-) I think that allows the rice to soak up flavor instead of flattening the flavor of the dish. Everything else was by the recipe and I’ll be the first to say it was one of the BEST MEALS WE’VE HAD all week! We’ve got two more meals left and I’m already planning on lunch tomorrow. You know what they say about the next day… January 14, 2015 at 7:27pm Reply

    • Ashante Williams: I was thinking the same thing about coming the rice IN the soup instead of separately. Do you think that this could be done in a slow cooker as well? March 4, 2018 at 4:51pm Reply

  • Taylor: Made this last night with ground turkey and chicken broth and it was delicious! Great recipe. January 16, 2015 at 7:30am Reply

  • Rebecca: The ingredients say uncooked rice but instructions say prepare rice…do I cook rice first or can I add it uncooked and let it cook within the soup ??? January 20, 2015 at 7:06pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Others have tried cooking it in the soup with good results but I just opted not to because I thought it may get mushy. If adding it to the soup to cook you’ll need to add the water needed along with it. Hope you love this soup! January 20, 2015 at 10:34pm Reply

If anyone has any help with that we’d appreciate it! February 14, 2015 at 11:14am Reply

  • Lori: This has become one of my favorite soups. I make it vegetarian with the beef crumbles, and vegetable broth. It is so filling and so low in calories. February 21, 2015 at 1:32pm Reply

  • Andrea: Excellent recipe! Tried it out today, a cool autumn day in Chile, and it is perfect. Hearty and rich enough to be a meal by itself, yet still with the comfort food quality of a soup.

    I doubled the recipe to leave leftovers for lunch tomorrow, but I changed a few measurments…

    For double of eveything else I used:
    1 large onion
    3 cloves of garlic
    1 1/2 red bell pepper (small)
    1 1/2 green bell pepper (small)
    20-25 oz of tomato sauce. (Upon tasting it, I think more would have been too much)

    Also, I think keeping the rice apart is very important. Even if you’re not leaving for another day, the perfectly “hard”, freshly added rice is delicious. I served the soup in bowls and let everyone add the amount of rice they wanted right before eating.

    The biggest compliment I can give is that it really tastes like stuffed bell peppers, a.k.a, the best food ever. March 26, 2015 at 7:39pm Reply

  • Beckie: Can I add the rice to the rest of the ingredients? My husband takes soup in his lunch and it would be more convenient if it was all together. March 27, 2015 at 2:20pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You can it just begins to soak up the juices once it’s added and it becomes more of a stew. April 20, 2015 at 11:57am Reply

  • Carla: Could you use instant rice instead? If so, how much? March 30, 2015 at 7:08am Reply

    • Jaclyn: That would be fine, I imagine 1 1/2 cups would be about equal to 1 cup regular. April 20, 2015 at 12:07pm Reply

  • wendy: Hi, I found this on pintrest and it sounds delicious but I’m confused about a few things. The recipe calls for a can of tomato sauce…what is this? In the UK our choices are ketchup, tomato puree or passata? Also beef broth, is that beef stock or a beef soup? Sorry to sound stupid but the transatlantic language barrier is stumping me! X August 21, 2015 at 1:03pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: No worries! If only they labeled and sold all the same stuff everywhere :). You’re best bet would be to use tomato paste blended with water and a little garlic and onion powder to make a tomato sauce, if you can find that – about 1 part paste to 2 or 3 parts water, then I may add 1 tsp of sugar along with it. If not the passata or puree would work. And the beef stock is what you’ll want to use. I hope you love it! August 27, 2015 at 7:57pm Reply

  • Danielle: Made this tonight, and it was delicious! My husband loves stuffed peppers, but they are a lot of work. Plus, I don’t like bell peppers, so some peppers always go to waste. But the peppers in this cook so well, I couldn’t really tell they were there. The only change I made was adding a can of tomato soup, because that’s how my husband likes his peppers. I didn’t actually measure the chopped peppers. I just used half of each, and froze the other half for the next time. Can’t wait to make this again. November 22, 2015 at 6:46pm Reply

  • Julie: I’ve made this soup twice in the past couple of weeks. My boyfriend and I love it! The only change I made was to use ground turkey and chicken broth instead of beef because I don’t eat beef. It’s a great, easy to make soup that I know I’ll make many more times. :) December 5, 2015 at 8:46am Reply

  • Mariann: I enjoyed this soup, hearty and tasty. I used orzo instead of rice, I like the texture better. Always use orzo instead of rice when I make stuffed peppers too.

    I was wondering (odd question). My favorite meal as a child was Hungarian goulash my mother would make. Would you happen to know the best way to keep the flavor in a soup form of Hungarian Goulash (with egg noodles)? December 28, 2015 at 2:51pm Reply

  • Sara: So I like the recipe, looks yummy in the pot, but it calls for such a little amount of bell peppers its hard to qualify it as bell pepper soup. I’m going to put about three or four into mine, instead of not even one. January 12, 2016 at 12:10pm Reply

  • Kristy: I came across this recipe about a year ago and I love it! I just sent this link to a friend who requested it, which is why I’m back on the page. I absolutely love this soup and make it at least once a month. I follow the recipe exactly and it always turns out perfectly. The only change I make is adding additional seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder, & Mrs. Dash Table Blend). One time, my husband requested that we try the recipe over some Rotini noodles instead of rice, and that was actually really good too, much to my surprise! But we usually just stick with the rice. :) Great recipe!!! July 7, 2016 at 12:46pm Reply

  • Roxanne: Love this. I modified the recipe a little to make it more like my stuff bell peppers. I cut the beef broth and added tomato soup. Great served over mashed potatoes with a side of whole kernel corn (or mix it right in) ~ I know, double starches, but with something this good, who really cares? July 26, 2016 at 5:43pm Reply

  • Sarah: I just made this recipe and oh my gosh I love it so much! I’ve been in the mood for a tomato based soup and this was absolutely perfect!

  • Brooke: Making this now for our first fall Sunday in California. I added a parmasian rind, a bit of tapatio, worstchestire, and used my own homemade chicken broth. Oh and a squeeze of lemon juice. I can’t wait to taste it!! October 2, 2016 at 12:30pm Reply

  • Ronda: Thank you for a delicious spin on stuffed peppers. I followed the recipe without changes and it was perfect. It was a hit with the entire family; I’ll definitely make this one again! November 10, 2016 at 7:03pm Reply

  • Joanne | No Plate Like Home: I’ve made this wonderful soup and it was a hit each time. Great idea for a homemade soup. I usually modify recipes based on what ingredients I have but this was perfect as is. November 18, 2016 at 7:20pm Reply

  • Mary: I have made this soup for quite a while now and I love it. I’ve changed it up a little by adding a couple tablespoons of chili sauce, this was to cut the bitterness of the tomatoes. Then I used instant brown rice and it tuned out fantastic. I will be making this soup for all special occations. My friends and family love it. February 21, 2017 at 3:00pm Reply

  • Joan LaRose: I can tell by these comments I’m a little late to the party here! My husband LOVES stuffed peppers. I don’t like peppers, so when we have them, I eat around the pepper. This recipe sounded so easy, and the peppers are cut up, so I decided to make it, and followed the recipe exactly as written. It is probably one of the most successful Pinterest recipes I’ve ever followed. For 2 people, I have enough for another meal, and then I will freeze the remainder for a quick meal sometime in the future. Thanks for adding something here that will make my life easier yet!

  • needlewings: I don’t care for the red peppers so I used all green pepper like a stuffed pepper would be. I tend to like a lot more flavor so I go heavy on the garlic and run it though my garlic press. I also like extra oregano. Home canned tomatoes and sauce .mmmmm…. I was fresh out of beef broth so used rotissary chicken broth. August 27, 2017 at 4:37pm Reply

  • Debbie: I made this in a crockpot and it was delicious. The only change was adding an extra half cup of the broth. I browned the meat on the stove, threw everything into the crockpot and let it cook on low for 5-6 hours. September 28, 2017 at 10:41am Reply

    • Jaclyn: So glad you liked it! Great idea with the crock pot! September 28, 2017 at 12:07pm Reply

  • Stacy Stocker: This is a tried and true recipe that I make once a month at my house. Huge hit for gatherings also. October 22, 2017 at 6:28am Reply

  • Athena HK: Loved It! Used Zaterain’s Spanish rice and omitted the spices. Added a bit of white pepper. Used parmesan topping and served with a fresh baked loaf of rosemary parmesan…the best. November 1, 2017 at 8:07pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Glad you loved it! Thanks Athena! November 6, 2017 at 12:25pm Reply

  • Joy: I’ve made this several times over the past year or so, and it’s just so homey and satisfying and delicious. The beef broth is really key to this recipe. It’s a chilly, wet, gloomy day here today in NC, and I just had my leftover soup from the weekend. The break room was abuzz when they all got a whiff of what I was heating up! Lots of requests for the recipe. Thank you for this recipe!! November 8, 2017 at 11:47am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for letting me know you loved it Joy! November 10, 2017 at 9:56am Reply

  • Stacy Stocker: Have made this recipe several times. It’s wonderful and just as good leftover!! Only thing to change is to double it!! November 16, 2017 at 10:22am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks Stacy! November 16, 2017 at 1:30pm Reply

  • Amber: I made this several years ago and it became one of my favorites. I make it often! I do double the peppers and I also leave the rice on the side. Leaving the rice out helps people choose the amount of rice they want or no rice.

  • Robin: This soup is so good! I made mine with ground chicken instead of beef. I had everything in stock except for fresh parsley so I just substituted dry parsley and it was wonderful. I will definitely make this again, but will double the recipe next time! January 4, 2018 at 12:49pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for your feedback Robin! January 4, 2018 at 1:12pm Reply

  • Bunnie: Great idea…actually brilliant and far easy to make then the actual stuffed peppers. I would request consideration of a recipe edit. The rice needs to read COOKED rice. I think so many will be to busy and just dump it in. If it is long grain (not instant) it will never cook. Oh, I can’t rate it until I try it. That is another request I have. Wish ratings for creativity would be available, but real ratings need to be reserved for those actually testing the finished product. Eat well all! January 6, 2018 at 12:48am Reply

  • Robin: This is now my husband’s favorite soup. His brother won’t eat red meat so we tried it with ground chicken. It was just as good as the original. I think it would be equally as good with ground turkey. I like the suggestion of leaving the rice separate if you plan to have leftovers because we always make extra for a quick meal during the week.

  • Jane: I noticed that someone added Rotel tomatoes. I kicked up the green chilis and added a small can of mild chopped green chilis (4 1/2 ounces) Also I am diabetic so I added some cooked Quinoa. Really delicious and filling! March 19, 2018 at 10:41am Reply
