I love stuffed peppers and I’ve experimented with different stuffing several times. I still find the original ground beef and rice combination the best. Making a soup with those flavors was amazing. I really needed to make a soup that used something other than chicken as meat.

As I mentioned in several posts before, I like to use as many fresh ingredients as much as possible and I like to make my own stock. Great thing about ground meats (particularly red meats like pork and beef)  is that it gives out a lot of juice. When I make chili, I barely have to add any stock, just a little bit. Since we are making a soup, we will add some stock but a lot of flavor with come from ground beef juices.

I also like to use different colors of bell peppers. First of all, it adds a touch of color the to soup. Second of all, each bell pepper type has a different flavor. Using 2-3 different colors of bell peppers will add extra flavor complexity to the soup.

**If you are thinking about what to do with the leftover peppers, I like to make a quick and delicious salad. I just dice the remaining peppers and dice a tomato. Mix the peppers, tomato, some feta cheese and a little bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste and you got yourself a delicious and healthy quick salad. **

    Stuffed Peppers are my of my favorite comfort foods in the winter. Love that you turned that deliciousness into soup, also comforting. Just pass me a book, blanket, and this bowl of soup and I’d be good to go for the night! Pinning Lyuba! :)

          Do you mean from the ground beef? I usually buy 80% lean so there is not much grease. It is juices that goes into the broth and give the soup a lot of its flavor. This is not a greasy soup by any means! Don’t worry, Debbie!

    This soup looks fantastic! What a comforting soup with so many wonderful flavors – I love stuffed peppers and a big bowl of this would be perfect on these chillier winter months :)

    how would I tweak the recipe to make it in a crockpot? I don’t own a large stock pot yet so I have to make every soup in my crockpot! Thanks in advance!

      Honestly, I don’t use my crock pot for soups (I don’t use it too much at all). You can use a medium pot for this soup, it doesn’t have to he very big (Unless you are planning to double the recipe). If I had to make it in the crock pot, I would say to cook everything but rice first, for a few hours. Then add rice and cook just until rice is done. I hope this helps!

    Made Stuffed Pepper Soup for dinner and it was fabulous! I love when recipes like this make the house smell so delicious! It always makes me smile…even on cold & windy march days :)

    The Stuffed Peppers Soup was really good! I cooked the rice separately since most of the soup was going to be eaten over the next couple days as leftovers. I also sprinkled a little shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of individual servings. Excellent!
