This is one of the most cozy soup recipes with rich homestyle flavor. It totally reminds me of growing up and being home. There’s just so much goodness in one bowl of this hearty soup.
You’ll love the comforting flavors in this soup and how well all the flavors blend together. The peppers and tomatoes offer a mellow and faintly sweet flavor, while the beef kicks in that flavor that will remind you of a traditional stuffed pepper.
And the rice in this soup gives it such a great texture and adds some body to it to keep it filling.
It’s the lazy way of making stuffed peppers and one of my go-to soup recipes. Trust me you’ll love this one!

How To Make Stuffed Pepper Soup
In a large stock pot brown ground meat. Drain fat and add pepper and onion. Cook until onion is translucent, not letting them brown.
Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, thyme, sage and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, until peppers are tender.
In another saucepan boil 2 cups water, and add rice. Cook until rice is tender and then add to soup. Heat soup through and serve.
