Stuffed Pepper Soup

 Throughout the winter months I usually make a batch of soup every week. Some of my favorite recipes over the past few years have been chicken soup, cabbage soup and cheeseburger soup. This year my sister Rachel shared one of her new favorite recipes- stuffed pepper soup. Last fall I had given my sister a couple jars of my homemade spaghetti sauce. Rachel used the spaghetti sauce in her stuffed pepper soup, in fact she said that  homemade spaghetti sauce made the soup even  more delicious. Since I had several bags of frozen peppers in my freezer, and jars of spaghetti sauce and tomatoes in my pantry I thought it would be a great recipe to try!

Stuffed Pepper Soup:

  • 1 cup rice (prepare with water amount recommended) 
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups frozen chopped green peppers, thawed
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained 
  • 1 can (14 ounces) beef broth
Prepare rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook the beef, green peppers and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, broth and prepared rice; heat through. 

As you can see this is a super fast and easy recipe to prepare! You may use white, brown or long grain rice; they all taste great in this soup. I sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top of the soup before serving.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have! Do you have a favorite soup recipe you have prepared this winter? 


  1. That look so tasty! We love stuffed peppers, so I might have to give this soup a try!
    I love making soups/stews this time of year. I usually end up making beef stew, tuscan soup, or something I make up using leftover roast.:)

  2. Yes! It's called "Amish Cheese Soup". Its a potato soup with cream of mushroom soup and velveteen cheese melted in it. We add boiled or steamed shrimp sometimes and it is so good!!!!

  3. Looks very good, hoping to get a good crop of peppers this year in the garden. Have to give this one a try next winter, we love stuffed peppers. Our favorite winter soups have been chicken noodle, vegetable beef and chili.

  4. I recently made a "no recipe" soup out of some good beef broth, celery, onion, garlic, carrots, and brussels sprouts. It was delicious!
    This recipe for stuffed pepper soup looks really tasty and easy!

  5. This is good recipe.. A total comfort food on a raining evening...
