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!

This is an awesome soup. Made this exactly as written and got thumbs up from the family. Second time I made it I used diced tomatoes with green chilies and added a tsp of Chili powder. Really got rave reviews.

We loved this soup! I made only 1/2 of the recipe to make sure that it would be one that I truly like. Like others, I added the white rice to each bowl first, then topped it with the soup and mixed it in. I wanted to avoid the common complaint that the rice expanded and got gummy as it sat in the refrigerator. The only change I would make is add more green pepper and reduce the amount of fluid. I cooked this on the stove for a couple of hours, adding fluid as needed. I used beef broth and a bit of water, and only 1 beef bouillon cube.

Tasty, but way too sweet. Cut the brown sugar by at least half.
