Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe

Looking for a new way to make the stuffed peppers that you love? This stuffed pepper soup is filling, easy to make and is filled with flavor that will having them begging for more!



Oh my. I love stuffed peppers, but sometimes? They’re a big ol’ pain in my rear to make. If you’ve ever made them, you’ll know what I mean. Most of the time I don’t mind, but other days? Yeah. Not happening. That’s why I LOVE this Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe! Its so simple to make that my Emma can do it at 9 (well with a bit of help) and its set it and forget it in your slow cooker! Even better? It freezes VERY well! You might notice that I had a lot more ingredients in my skillet and bowls than what the recipe calls for. I was making a double batch. 🙂


You Will Need:


  • 2 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 medium onion – chopped to the size you desire
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 8 cups water
  • 28 oz Tomato Sauce
  • 28 oz Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 cup uncooked Rice – Don’t use instant. It will turn to mush in the crock if you do.
  • 2 cup chopped peppers
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp powdered beef base OR 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper






Chop onion and peppers to the size that you desire. You can use a yellow onion, but I don’t like the tangy flavor of yellow onions so I use a sweet white onion. Use any color pepper that you want. I’ve used red and green as well as orange and yellow. Just depends on what I have on hand. You can also just use 2 cups of the same pepper if you’d rather do that. 🙂




Add your chopper peppers and onion to your ground beef and brown in a large skillet. This here skillet? That’s my fried chicken skillet. It’s PERFECT for that…lol.




Brown your ground beef and cook until your onions are translucent and peppers are cooked. Drain well and RINSE. I realize that there are people that are all against rinsing hamburger. Frankly? You see how much grease is in that skillet. I have no desire whatsoever to have that float to the top of my soup. So RINSE your meat in warm water. It won’t affect the taste and its healthier.




Add your ground beef (after its rinsed please…lol) to your slow cooker with the remaining ingredients. Add water all at once and give a good stir. Cook on low 8-10 hours or until rice is cooked and flavors are mixed well. Be sure to give it a good stir before you turn the heat off.



This recipe goes GREAT with a piece of crusty bread and some sweet cream butter! Also, you don’t HAVE to cook the peppers with the ground beef, however, I like my ground beef to take on the flavor of the peppers and onion so I make sure to cook mine when the ground beef is browning. I just think it tastes better! This makes a fantastic lunch or easy dinner and its super cheap to make too! Try it! I think you’ll love it!

    Thanks for the recipe! I like the rinsing part, I do the same! You are the first I have seen to suggest it for anything.

  2. Debbie Welchert says:

    This soup looks so good and I can’t wait to try it. I agree about rinsing the ground beef. There is nothing worse than seeing a bunch of grease floating on top of your soup.

    How yummy this sounds, have printed and am going to try it when weather gets a little colder, I love soups, stews, and I love my crock Pot, I like you like different colors of my peppers and I found that the smaller ones are sweeter and not tangy, so I use them a lot.

    Gosh this looks super yummy! I love a good home cooked meal from the crock pot. They warm you up on those cold fall and winter evenings. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Can you substitute tomato juice for the 28 oz. of tomato sauce? Or would that make it too runny?

    • You could try it, but I’m not certain how well it would work out. Let me know if you do give it a shot! I’m curious!

  12. Gonna try this with cauliflower “rice” and skip the sugar! Yum!

  13. This was very good. Usually we freeze crockpot leftovers but we happily ate this for days.

  14. Not sure why my comments aren’t showing up…but this is amazing.
