The weather is cooling down and that means it’s time to break out the slow cooker, so today I am sharing this yummy Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe and I hope you love it!
We love Stuffed Bell Peppers here at our house, but they take a little prep and time to make, which sometimes I don’t always have, especially on busy school nights! And ya’ll know that I am a sucker for easy and simple meals. I do have a special affinity for the ones where I can throw all the ingredients into my slow cooker and head off to work. Because I know that as soon as we walk in from our long school day, a delicious smell will hit our noses and we know that dinner is in a matter of minutes, not hours. Honestly, I think the slow cooker is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. I happen to own the extra-large Crock Pot and absolutely love it! The size is perfect for our family of 5 and our hungry, growing kids. But if you don’t need one that large, I found this smaller one on Amazon and it’s fairly inexpensive. I promise if you don’t have a slow cooker and purchase one, you are going to LOVE it!
Now, off to the recipe!
- 1 lb Lean Ground Beef or Turkey
- 1 Cup Chopped Onion
- 1 Can Diced Tomatoes with Garlic & Onions
- 15 oz Can of Tomato Sauce
- 2 Cups Chopped Green & Red Bell Peppers
- 3 Cups Beef Broth
- ½ tsp Dried Basil
- 1 Cup Rice
- Brown Ground Beef/Turkey with Onion
- Drain beef and onions and place in slow cooker.
- Add tomatoes (including juice) and remaining ingredients, except rice – which should be added 1 hour before end of cooking.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Ingredients, although using ground turkey and brown rice is a healthier alternative!
Yummy chopped bell peppers for this delicious soup!
I like to cook my onions in a little olive oil, before I add my ground beef/turkey.
And the final reveal of this amazingly delicious recipe is here…tada! Add a little cornbread or crusty french bread and your family will be licking their lips, just like mine do!
