If you are in the market for a crockpot, I really like this crockpot.  I use this all the time and it’s great. My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

The kids love this Stuffed Peppers Soup Crockpot recipe!

There are times that my family wants crock pot traditional stuffed peppers. It is so easy to make them in the crock pot. But when I started making it in the soup form, my family loved it even more!

It is so full of flavor. Even my pickiest eater loves stuffed pepper soup. If you think yours kids will be afraid of this soup, you need to try it anyway.  This is one of my favorite leftover rice recipes. We use leftover rice to make a second dinner!

I love that I can hide the peppers and onions because when cooked in the crock pot they are soft and nobody knows they are eating them. I love it when I can sneak in vegetables.

How to make Crockpot Stuffed Pepper Soup:

You are not going to believe how easy this recipe is to make.  It tastes like it took tons of work like stuffed peppers but I promise it’s simple to create!

  • First place everything (except the rice in the crockpot).  Then stir to combine thoroughly.
  • Next cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Cooking times might vary based on your crockpot.
  • While the soup is in the crock pot, cook rice based on the package directions.

  • After this cook time, stir the crockpot stuffed peppers soup before serving.  The bell peppers will be soft and delicious.
  • Spoon the soup into a bowl and top with a spoonful of the cooked rice or you can mix the rice right into the crock pot.

Storing Leftovers:

Storing leftovers is so easy! You can definitely freeze any that you have left over. 

To freeze, let the left overs cool completely. Then store in your freezer in an air tight freezer bag.  I heat it up on the stove top (after defrosting) in a large pot when I’m ready to serve this recipe again.  It’s easy to freeze and the leftovers taste great too!

I also like freezing individual containers for an easy lunch. My husband loves going to work with a container of Crock Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup for lunch.

By the time lunch comes around, it is thawed and ready to eat. He has a good lunch and doesn’t have to have fast food.

Variation Ideas:

This delicious crock pot recipe is very versatile.  It’s easy to change it up to make sure it’s the perfect soup recipe for your family.

  • You can make it healthier by chopping up cauliflower and use it instead of rice if you are following a low carb diet.  Even though I think that this recipe is pretty healthy and low in saturated fat. Brown Rice works great too!
  • Check out my easy Cauliflower rice recipe. My kids ate it with rice last week, but I used cauliflower to get my extra veggies in.
  • Also, you can easily change the flavor by using different types of meats in this recipe. Try making it with ground sausage, ground chicken or ground turkey as well.
  • If you want to add a little spice to you can add in some slice jalapeno to this soup.

This the main reason I love this soup. The options are endless. You can use whatever you have in your freezer to make this delicious soup recipe.

    Awesome recipe, I used diced tomatoes with green chillies and added fresh sliced mushrooms. Turned out great.

  2. Sonya Edwards says:

    5 stars
    This was definitely a hit at my job Potluck! Most had never heard of it before. Definitely froze some of it! Thank you!

  3. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes you can.

  4. Carrie Barnard says:

    yes it will.

  5. Cristina S says:

    I forgot to brown my ground beef before adding to my crockpot. 🙁 will it still be edible?

  6. Debra Keifer says:

    Can I use frozen peppers?

  7. Dianne M Bailey says:

    5 stars
    I love this soup and have made it several times. I put my rice in before serving. Since I am a widow I freeze my leftovers in individual containers and freeze. I put it in my microwave on reheat and it comes out heated and thawed. So easy for a quick meal.

  8. Andrea says:

    Looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it!

  9. Linda says:

    This was way too much rice. It wasn’t soup it was like a casserole. Try 1 cup.

  10. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, of course you can.

  11. Carrie Barnard says:

    Thank you for commenting ??

  12. Cindy says:

    5 stars
    I used stewed tomatoes dicing them up first.The soup was already done so I set my crockpot on warm for about an hour and a half. Cooked quickly on low in about 6 1/2 hours. Added the warm cooked rice to the crockpot about 20 minutes before I served it. Will definitely make it again.

  13. Val Wilson says:

    5 stars
    Love this

  14. Lisa Akin says:

    Can I use tomatoes out of the garden instead of canned?

  15. Jennie says:

    5 stars
    This was so easy to make vegan! I cook the rice separately because the leftovers are better separate. My meat eating family members LOVE the vegan version of this! I’m going to try this in the Instant Pot today and see how it works, but I have also made this on the stove and it came out fantastic. This is a go to recipe for me and during the winter I probably make it at least once a month if not more.

  16. Lacey Wesley says:

    5 stars
    One of our families favorite soups. When your done we use the base of the stuffed pepper soup for chili! Yummy

  17. Kathryn Canty says:

    5 stars
    I have made this soup at least 5 times! This soup is the one which got me to give bell peppers a try. I have never liked them before, until this soup. It’s out of my comfort zone, but I’m so glad I tried it. Both my husband and I love this recipe, and I love how healthy it is. Such a great soup for a cold night, but also just anytime of the year.

  18. Carrie says:

    I think it’s a great amount but you can definitely double it or add more if you prefer.

  19. YeeshaYynn says:

    Knowing this is all about the bell pepper factor, is this really enough bell pepper to kick the craving? So to speak…
    They just get so small when they’ve been cooked it seems, and one bell pepper (combined) doesn’t seem like enough for a soup that feeds 4 people or more. So I was curious if this really seemed to be enough bell pepper for everyone, or did anyone wind up adding more? Thanks bunches!

  20. Jennifer LaRue-Ibrahim says:

    5 stars
    I made the Stuffed pepper soup and loved it! It was so easy to put together as I had cut up my veggies and froze them beforehand, so I only had to get them out and mix them together with the ground beef, broth and seasonings. This was a very delicious dinner that everyone loved.

  21. Melissa McDonald says:

    5 stars
    A perfect alternative to stuffed peppers! This is in our dinner meal rotation.

  22. Carol Stegmaier says:

    5 stars
    I made this with Riced Cauliflower instead of rice. I made a double recipe. It was a hit! We ate the soup for 2 meals and then I thickened and stuffed some extra peppers I had. Added Parmesan Cheese and baked and added mozzarella cheese and family thought it was just as good but a whole new meal. Another favorite and so easy too.

  23. Catherine says:

    5 stars
    Perfect for a cold snowy day!

  24. Paula Ferretti says:

    5 stars
    The best and no stuffing peppers

  25. Jan says:

    5 stars
    This is so easy to make and my entire family loves it. I have added this to my rotation of dinner recipes.

  26. Carrie says:

    I make this recipe with pre-browned ground beef, so I would defrost the ground beef and brown it first. Thank you!

  27. Kathryn says:

    If I have frozen ground beef would I put it on high for a specific amount of hours? If so how long?

  28. Carrie says:

    I haven’t tried it but yes, I think it would still taste great without the rice.

  29. Ashley says:

    Can you make this without the rice?

  30. Carrie says:

    Love your 2 versions. They both sound delicious. Thank you for sharing and I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  31. Carrie says:

    5 stars
    Made 2 pots. One for me and one for my vegan boyfriend. I used plant based ‘meat’ for him and a vegan Worcestershire recipe I found online. I put the rice on the bottom instead and added mozzarella (dairy free for him) on the top. Amazing. Flavors are really good!!! Both of us LOVED our versions!!

  32. Carrie says:

    I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  33. coston says:

    5 stars
    wow! couldn’t wait 6 hours…ate mine after 4 on high. Delicious!

  34. Carrie says:

    I cook this recipe on low for 6-8 hours. I updated the recipe. Thank you!

  35. Stephanie says:

    What do I cook it on, high or low?

  36. Becky says:

    Can this be done in an insta pot??

  37. Andrea says:

    Instead of cooking rice separate, can I put uncooked rice in crock pot and let it cook in there?

  38. Debby says:

    What a great, hearty soup! ?
    The video shows yellow, red, orange bell peppers! Recipe used green! I’m sure it’s just as tasty! Just loved! ?
    I used 2 lbs. ground beef. (I like meat), doubling recipe!
    Poured over rice. Added cheddar cheese on top when served. ? More YUM!
    Thank you for recipe!

  39. Samara says:

    How long to cook on high in the crock pot?

  40. Lee DeHaro says:

    It’s probably more flavorful to use the stock, but just curious how many more calories per serving will this add if I use the stock rather than water?

  41. Carrie says:

    I use a 6 quart crock pot when I make this recipe. Thank you.


    5 stars
    This is the best soup and so easy to make.

  43. Paul says:

    How many quart crockpot?

  44. Carrie says:

    I’m glad to hear it. Thanks for sharing!

  45. Danielle says:

    Absolutely love this recipe & so do my husband and kids ! I didn’t have time before work to put it in my Crock-Pot so I made it on the stove. So delicious

  46. Carrie says:

    Yes, it’s a bell pepper also. Thanks!

  47. Chuvvk says:

    What kind of pepper is the red one in the recipe, is it a bell pepper also?

  48. Carrie says:

    Yes, this should serve 4-6 people. Thank you!

  49. Brittany says:

    If I followed this to the exact how many would it serve? If there is 4of us should it be enough?

  50. Carrie says:

    I usually use 90/10 ground beef so I don’t have to drain it. If there is a lot of grease, I would drain before adding it to the crock pot. Thank you!

  51. Roberta says:

    Not to drain the meat? Just put in crockpot after Browning?

  52. Carrie says:

    Yum! Yes, I think that would taste amazing! Let us know how it turns out. Thanks Terry!

  53. Carrie says:

    Judy – since the ground beef is browned this would just need to simmer on the stove top or in the oven for 20 minutes. Thank you.

  54. Carrie says:

    Traci – It’s 1/6 of the total amount made. It’s hard to put a certain size on it as each batch varies. Thank you!

  55. Christy says:

    4 stars
    Made this but substituted Rotel mild for the diced tomatoes. It was delicious!

  56. Judy says:

    5 stars
    How long in the oven or on top of the stove?

  57. Terry dorsch says:

    I’m thinking this would be great with cabbage added, what are your thoughts? Sounds absolutely delicious as it is but I love the flavor of cabbage

  58. Traci says:

    How much of the soup is one serving?

  59. Carrie says:

    It’s one of my favorites too. I’m so glad you enjoyed it Daniela!

  60. Daniela says:

    5 stars
    This is my new favorite recipe…best with ground beef…
    Thank you!!! 🙂

  61. Angie says:

    5 stars
    Does it have to be tomato sauce? Or can you use pasta sauce?

  62. Mariela says:

    5 stars
    I made this exactly as listed and it is absolutely delicious. I did add a tiny bit of cheddar cheese in our individual bowls and it was so yummy. Great recipe!

  63. Kimberly says:

    I accidentally cooked the onions and pepper with my beef

  64. Danielle says:

    Do you the time for doing this in the Instapot?

  65. Suzanne says:

    Can you use Tofu instead of ground meat??

  66. Carrie says:

    I would just cook until the steak is cooked through.

  67. Princess says:

    How long if I cooked this on Stove Too? No crock pot

  68. Carrie says:

    I did low and I didn’t season the meat when browning but you can.

  69. Gileanne says:

    Do you cook it on high or low? Do you season meat when browning?

  70. Carrie says:

    Yes Lauriann, I brown the meat first, thanks

  71. becky says:

    OMG this is soooo good. I’ll make it again next week!!

  72. Lauriann says:

    Do you need to brown the meat first?

  73. Carrie says:

    Hi Kira, Just one or the other. Depending on your preference for flavor ,thanks so much

  74. Kira says:

    Is it both water and beef stock?

  75. Carrie says:

    14 oz.

  76. Karen Richards says:

    What Size Can Of Tomatoes 14 oz or 28oz ?

  77. Crystal says:

    I’ve made this recipe twice with Sweet Italian Sausage instead of beef or turkey. It has been on sale at Homeland lately for a dollar. Anyway, it is SO good made with the italian sausage. 🙂
