Stuffed Pepper Soup

Creating soup recipes that are filling and healthy is one of my main goals. I don’t like my soup to be all broth, so I love filling it with a ton of veggies and meat. This soup is so easy and can be whipped up on the stove in less than 30 minutes or put in the crock pot to cook all day.

Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed peppers is always one of our go-to dinners all year around, so I just took those same ingredients and turned it into a yummy soup. The main base of this soup is ground beef and sausage along with green peppers, beef broth, green peppers, onions and spices.

Not only is this a great dish for football Sunday or tailgating, but you can take it up a notch by pouring it over a sweet potato. It will for sure fill up all the men in your life and they will be running back for seconds.

Can you freeze this stuffed pepper soup?

Yes! Add this soup to a freezer proof container and freeze up to 3 months. Simply thaw and heat up on the stove top or microwave and serve. I love making 2 big batches and using it as a meal on those days I don’t feel like cooking.
