Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed Pepper Soup

I love stuffed peppers but I don’t fix them very often because my peppers always seem to end up to hard and my stuffing is most always dry.

I was surfing the net for recipes and saw this recipe on Chaos in the Kitchen for stuffed pepper soup. Soup! My problems are solved, no more hard dry stuffed peppers. Thanks Katie🙂

This soup really turned out to be super tasty!  I threw a piece of cornbread in mine and all was right with the world.  It’s also pretty low in calories,  200 calories without the rice, 400 calories per serving if you add the rice.

Stuffed Pepper Soup
makes 6 cups, prep 15 min, cook time 30 min

1 lb ground beef, I use 93/7 beef
1/2 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced (plus leaves for garnish)
1 lb bell peppers, diced (approx 3 large)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 oz) can diced or crushed tomatoes
2 cups water or low sodium beef broth
1 tbsp beef base
salt and pepper

In a large stock pot, crumble ground beef and stir in onion, celery, peppers, and garlic.
Heat over high to brown beef and sweat and soften the vegetables, about 10 minutes.
Add tomatoes, beef stock or water, and beef base.
Simmer 15 minutes or longer until ready to serve.
Taste and season with salt and fresh ground pepper.
Serve with fresh rice.
