Have been trying new recipes, found this to be in top 3. Easy, ingredients always in pantry, one pot wonder. Everyone would place rice in bowls first, then sauce over. Left over rice will be used in another recipe. Nothing goes to waste... mmmm mmmm delish!!!!

This soup was delicious. I only used 1 lb of hamburger but that was plenty for us. I did have a lot leftover, so next time I'll add the rice to each bowl and not to the entire pan of soup. It soaked it up and was no longer soup the next day. It was easy enough to thin out with more stock, but the rice got a little mushy. Still good and none went to waste!

This recipe was great! It was quick and easy, using ingredients that a lot of people have on hand. I cut the recipe in half and it still made a ton! I would make this again. I added some grated Parmesan cheese to mine.

Wonderful recipe!! I left off the brown sugar (I am diabetic) and added a half an onion, diced, and about a 1/4 cup celery which are two additional ingredients that I include in my stuffed peppers. I cooked it in my crockpot on low for 8 hours. I will definitely make this again!!

We loved this recipe! Hubby is a heart patient so to cut the sodium I used no salt added beef stock for the water, no salt added diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. I also substituted ground turkey (and cut the meat to 1.5 pounds) and added some no salt added black beans . As stated by others, we prepared the rice separately and spooned the soup over the rice. This is a hearty satisfying soup!

This soup is delicious! I browned the ground beef and then threw everything but the rice into a crockpot & cooked on low for 6 hours. During the last 1 12 hours I added the cooked rice to the crockpot. I had roasted red peppers so I used 1 cup of those & 1 cup green peppers. Leftovers are great too even though it is thicker.

Very easy and delicious! I doubled the green peppers and added onion, garlic, and a little cayenne pepper. I didn’t add the rice to the soup, but put a little rice in the bowls and ladled the soup over the top. I served it with some delicious crusty bread. My husband and I both loved it. This recipe is a keeper!

This recipe has been so popular. So many great reviews. I am happy to finally be adding mine. I can’t add much more then what has already been spoken for. It’s a greet good, satisfying soup. One that really matures overnight.It has the perfect name, it does taste like a stuffed pepper! Due to some diet restrictions I made the following changes. No brown sugar or tomato sauce. I used 1 very large fresh tomato. I used a packet of beefy onion soup mix and added some Better Than Boullion Beef base to the mix. I upped the amount of green pepper and used less ground beef. And I used no rice.This is all about the beefy taste wrapped around Green Peppers.It was most enjoyable.TOH-VFE

This recipe is excellent! My family loved it! My husband, who is not big on ground meat, would have liked a bit less but did love the taste. It is very hearty and great with a salad and crusty rolls.

Amazing! Growing up....stuffed green peppers were my favorite! I did NOT (wish I had) know there was such a thing as GREEN PEPPER SOUP until I was at an upscale restaurant a few months ago and it was one of my choices for soup. I tried it and was blown away how good it was... it reminded me of my mom's! That night when I got home....I searched online to find this v recipe. I had all the ingredients.... so the next day I made it and now it is a monthly dinner plus enough for MY lunch the next day! I did add a few splashes of .... worcestershire because that was something I remember my mom putting in her stuffed peppers & with my eyes closed it was liked eating my mom's stuffed peppers! Amazing!!! To put a slice of American cheese on top of each bowl..... will blow your mind.... makes it creamy and delicious! I am a picky eater.... so to find this recipe is the BEST! To make it thicker add a little more cooked rice other than that ENJOY!
