  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 bell peppers, diced (any color)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 4 cups beef or chicken broth
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Shredded cheese and chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Brown the Meat: In a large pot or Dutch oven, brown the ground beef or turkey over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain any excess fat if needed.
  2. Sauté Vegetables: Add the diced onion, bell peppers, and minced garlic to the pot with the cooked meat. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and fragrant.
  3. Add Tomatoes and Broth: Stir in the diced tomatoes (with their juices), tomato sauce, and broth. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. Season and Simmer: Add the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Stir in the cooked rice. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and let the soup simmer for 20-25 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Serve: Ladle the Stuffed Pepper Soup into bowls and garnish with shredded cheese and chopped fresh parsley, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!


  • Vegetarian Option: Omit the ground meat and use vegetable broth instead of beef or chicken broth. Add extra vegetables such as diced zucchini, mushrooms, or carrots for added flavor and texture.
  • Slow Cooker Method: Brown the meat and sauté the vegetables in a skillet, then transfer everything to a slow cooker along with the tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, and seasonings. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  • Instant Pot Method: Use the sauté function to brown the meat and sauté the vegetables directly in the Instant Pot. Add the remaining ingredients, seal the lid, and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Quick release the pressure and serve.
