I’m not going to lie – this soup was amazing.  Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup should be put on everyone’s meal list this week!  I LOVE the taste of stuffed peppers – but…um…I’m lazy with food sometimes.  Stuffing Peppers doesn’t seem like that much fun.  I have fallen in love with Lori’s Stuffed Pepper Explosion – because 1 it’s the lazy way to make stuffed peppers and 2 because it’s delicious.  This soup?  Is another recipe that is going to show up at my house again and again and again!

Best part of the whole plan?  I made it in the slow cooker.  You guys know how much I love my slow cooker.  I did have to brown the meat first, but after that – it was slow cooker all the way.


I am always happy when a dinner comes together so easily.  Other best part about the dinner?  It’s a GREAT freezer meal.  It worked great for that (I have some more in my freezer right now!)

  1. My oldest does not like minute rice at all, do you think I could add in the long basmati rice a little earlier? Thanks, we are having a baby real soon and my oldest will be helping with good dinners big time when he comes. I’ve written down a lot of your recipes for the freezer cooking so far!
