I love stuffed peppers, but my family doesn't. They don't like the thought of cutting into a whole pepper and eating it. When I use the same ingredients and put them in a soup though? It's a hit with everyone!

You can find many different versions of this slow cooker stuffed pepper soup out there. Most of them call for you to saute the vegetables. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the slow cooker though? With my recipe, you will brown the meat, add the vegetables and liquids, then cook until it's time to add the rice. I think you will love the rich flavors of this soup.

Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

Ingredients for Stuffed Pepper Soup

3 Bell Peppers (assorted colors)
1/2 onion, chopped (I buy sweet onions)
3/4 Pound Ground Beef
28 oz Stewed Tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
5 cups Vegetable or Chicken Broth
2 t beef bouillon (I use Better Than Bouillon Roasted Beef Base)
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1/4 t garlic powder
1/8 t Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning (optional - it adds a little extra heat)
3/4 cup Minute Rice

fresh vegetables and stewed tomatoes for soup

Directions to Make Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

1. Use nonstick spray to coat the inside of your slow cooker.
2. Brown your ground beef in a frying pan. Drain the fat.

3. Chop your peppers and onions into bit size pieces.
4. Place all the ingredients except rice into your slow cooker. It is going to look extra liquidy, but that will absorb quite a bit when you add the rice later.

5. Cook on low setting for 4-5 hours.
6. Add rice, cover and cook for 15-30 minutes. Taste and season more if necessary.
