Stuffed Green Pepper Soup Recipe


I brown up extra ground beef and freeze in 1 pound increments.  That way, when I want to whip up a quick recipe like this one, I just quickly grab two pounds of prepped meat out of the freezer, cut up the veggies, and toss everything in my crock pot.  I have supper going in about 5 minutes and then I’m free to walk away till meal time!

What To Serve With Your Stuffed Green Pepper Soup Recipe:

This soup recipe is thicker, more like a stew consistency.  I love that because it’s a heartier, more filling soup which means I don’t need to have too many other fillers or sides.  With that said, my family’s favorite side with this soup is garlic bread or a fresh loaf of Challah Bread.   Of course, you can never go wrong pairing with a side salad or roasted veggies either!
