Easy Stuffed Pepper Soup has all the great flavors of stuffed peppers. However, not nearly as much work. Green and red peppers,rice and ground beef in a tomato base broth. I whipped this soup up in less than an hour on top of the stove and it was great.
Easy Stuffed Pepper Soup
Not only is pumpkin and apple season upon us, soup season is here too. This pepper soup is great. However, if you aren't a pepper fan, try Instant Pot Vegetable Beef Soup or Slow Cooker Clam Chowder both are also delicious. I made my pepper soup a little spicy by using canned tomatoes with green chili's in them. This soup is packed full of green and red peppers, ground beef,onions, canned tomatoes and rice. I cooked it on top of the stove but sure it would be good in a slow cooker or instant pot as well.
My inspiration for this soup was found over at https://chefsavvy.com/ Kelly's looked delicious but i did change a few things. she used ground sausage ,I switched that to ground beef and used brown rice verses white.
