Stuffed Pepper Soup


A bowl full of Stuffed Pepper Soup is warm and comforting on a chilly night. It’s an economical meal that will quickly become a family favorite. And it’s a cinch to make!

How To Make Stuffed Pepper Soup:

I like a really meaty Stuffed Pepper Soup so I start with 2 pounds of ground beef. Brown it, drain the grease off, and add the onions and peppers. Cook them down until they start to get soft and then add canned tomatoes, 2 beef bouillon cubes, water, some brown sugar for a hint of sweetness, and a few dried herbs for flavor.

I like to add the rice in just before serving or it tends to soak up too much liquid.

Stuffed Pepper Soup has all the flavor of stuffed peppers


Serve with some crusty bread or Saltines crackers and you have yourself a meal!

Recipe Tips: 

  • If you want to make a spicy version of this soup, add 1 or 2 finely diced jalapeno peppers in with the bell peppers. You can also add 1 teaspoon of hot sauce.
  • Use a combo of red and green bell peppers instead of all green bell peppers for a little extra sweetness.
  • If you want to make this soup low carb, use riced cauliflower instead of white rice and leave the brown sugar out.

  1. Amazing soup if you don’t add the brown sugar. With it I wouldn’t feed it to a dog because I would be afraid of giving the dog diabetes.
