Stuffed Pepper Soup

If you are like me, you love stuffed peppers! Imagine my delight when our very own Wiz Kid, Miranda Greene, shared a Stuffed Pepper Soup! At first, I thought “no way can this really taste like a stuffed pepper.” Boy, was I wrong! This soup is super simple to make, and so delicious!

You can see the original recipe on The Country Cook. I made mine with pretty much same ingredients, but for anyone who knows me, I use a recipe as a guide line. I did change it up a little bit to fit my taste.

Stuffed Pepper Soup Ingredients:
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 2 Medium Peppers (red and yellow)
  • 2 Cans Rotel Tomatoes (15 ounce)
  • 1 Can Tomato Sauce (15 ounce)
  • 2 Cans Chicken Broth (I started out with one like the original recipe said too, but as it simmered the rice sucked up a lot of the liquid, so I started adding out of second can a little at a time until I got it the way we wanted it. Start out with one can and as it simmers add more if you need to.)
  • 2 Cups Cooked Rice
  • 1 TSP Sugar (Optional, but it is very helpful to cut down the acidity of the tomato sauce)
  • Season to your liking – I used garlic powder, Tony’s Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese

*Note*– The Rotel will give it a little more spice, so if you do not like the extra spice flavor, just use (1) 26 ounce can of diced regular tomatoes. Personally, I loved the flavor the Rotel added!

Stuffed Pepper Soup Directions:
  1. Cut up your peppers into bite size pieces and add to pot along with chopped onions (optional) and ground beef.
  2. Cook until beef is browned and done.
  3. Drain any excess fat off of beef, then add your beef, onions, and peppers back into the pot.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients, cover, and let simmer for about 30 – 45 minutes on low to medium heat.
  5. Keep checking and stirring occasionally to see if you need to add more broth to it. Soon, it will smell like you just cooked up a batch of homemade stuffed peppers!
  6. Top with shredded cheddar cheese when serving if you like!

This stuffed pepper soup is amazing! It taste just like eating a real stuffed pepper! Thank you Miranda for sharing this soup you found!
