Ingredients needed for stuffed pepper soup

  • Lean Ground Beef: I used lean ground beef, but you can use sausage or ground turkey if you prefer.
  • Bell Peppers: I like the flavor of red and green bell peppers, but if you like a sweeter soup, substitute the green bell pepper for an orange.
  • Onion: This recipe calls for a medium yellow onion.
  • Minced Garlic: I prefer to use the minced garlic in a jar. It’s so easy to have on hand when you need minced garlic.
  • Salt and Pepper: Use more or less to your taste.
  • Italian Seasoning: Adds a great flavor to the soup. If you don’t have Italian seasoning, you can use 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, 1/2 tsp. dried basil, and 1 tsp. parsley flakes.
  • Beef Broth: I use low sodium beef broth to keep the salt content down.
  • Rotel Diced Tomatoes: I used Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis because I like a little spice to my soup. If you don’t like spice, substitute for regular diced tomatoes.
  • Petite Diced Tomatoes: Are just like regular diced tomatoes, only cut smaller. You can use regular diced tomatoes if that’s what you have on hand.
  • Tomato Sauce: I used can tomato sauce, but you can use homemade if you have it.
  • Rice: I find that when using minute rice in this soup, the rice doesn’t become mushy. You can use white or brown.

What should I serve stuffed pepper soup with?

I like to serve this Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup with any type of fresh bread. My family loves to dip garlic knots in their soup and have a little side green salad along with their soup. This is a fairly hearty soup, and fills my family up, so I don’t have to prepare many sides to go with it.
