Stuffed Pepper Soup

This is a really simple soup. So simple, that I don't have very many pictures to show you......But it's really good!

I started off by browning one pound of hamburger with one chopped onion and two chopped bell peppers.

Then, I added a jar of spaghetti sauce, a can of diced tomatoes, beef broth, frozen brown rice and salt and pepper. That's it!

All the flavors of stuffed peppers, but much easier! It is also really good with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese on top.

Stuffed Pepper Soup

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped (any color is fine)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
2 cups rice, cooked
4 cups beef broth (one 32-ounce carton)
1 can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper

Brown ground beef in large pot and add onion and bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper and cook till veggies are softened. Add in rest of ingredients and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

* I used a bag of frozen brown rice (pictured below) that I poured in still frozen but it is pre-cooked. You can use any variety you like just as long as it is cooked before you add it in. This is also a good opportunity to use up leftover white rice from Chinese carryout.


  1. mmm!!! You won't believe it, but I actually made stuffed pepper soup over the weekend!! My recipe is a little different, but similar!!! YUM-O!

  2. So good! Had this for dinner tonight! Yummy!

  3. Also wanted to say, we saved the leftovers and had them the next day for lunch... It was just as good the next day. Will definitely make again!
