Step By Step  

Not to be confused with the classic stuffed peppers that are baked, these peppers are stuffed with soup made in the slow cooker!

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

All the ingredients from classic stuffed peppers are slow-cooked into soup, then ladled into fresh bell-pepper "bowls."

Things I need to do more often:

1) Make Slow Cooker Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup.

2) Stuff soup inside a bell pepper.

Seriously, you guys. If ever there was a better way to avoid doing dishes, it’s using a pepper as a soup bowl. And what better soup to do so with than a healthy, savory, slow-cooked, stuffed bell pepper-inspired one?

This soup is chock-full of good-for-you ingredients, totally fits the “set it and forget it” bill and tastes pretty darn close to its namesake.

But enough babbling about it! Here’s how you make this magic happen:

 

Slow Cooker Soup-Stuffed Bell Peppers

First, brown a couple pounds of ground beef in a saucepan. You can swap the ground beef for ground chicken or turkey for extra health, if you like. In any case, drain the meat and transfer it to a slow cooker.

 

Slow Cooker Soup-Stuffed Bell Peppers

Mix in some chopped onion, chopped green and red bell pepper (orange and/or yellow would work, too), garlic, brown sugar, broth, diced tomatoes and a few other goody-goody yum-yums (I’m practicing my baby talk).

Stir it all together, cover and cook on high heat for 4 hours, until errthing gets all nice and tender and cooked through.

Meanwhile, make some Pillsbury breadsticks to serve on the side! These are the garlic version and they are INSANE. In the best way possible.

About 30 minutes before the soup is done, add a couple cups of cooked rice and stir it in.

Here’s where the stuffed pepper funtimes happen! Cut the top off of a bell pepper and scoop out the seeds, being careful not to make a hole in the bottom of the pepper. Place it on a serving plate, then ladle in some soup. Serve it with one of those insane breadsticks I told you about.

But wait! We’re not done…

OK OK, now we’re done. Cheese-topped, stuffed bell pepper soup in a stuffed pepper goodness, come to mama.
