More About This Recipe

  • 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. As an added bonus, make some Pillsbury breadsticks to serve on the side!
