This is a flavorful recipe that's easy to prepare! I switched out the diced tomatoes for tomato soup. My family loved this recipe!

My husband picked this recipe from our Simple and Delicious magazine and I am so glad he did! Made it just as written. Wonderful flavor, and have made this many times. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Soup has a very good flavor and is easy way to enjoy stuffed peppers deconstructed, but I didn't have the type of rice it called for and used regular rice which didnt work well. Soup was too thick and more like a casserole.

This was delicious!! I don't always have the time to make stuffed peppers and this soup is a great alternative. You get the flavor of a stuffed pepper in a quick and easy soup.

My husband and I enjoyed this soup. I try to make soup once a week and using a slow cooker was really easy. Will definitely make this again and add to my rotation.
