"Unstuffed" Green Pepper Soup for the Crock Pot

Angie Robinson


I am a stuffed pepper and also a soup fanatic, so this is a great way to get both in one. To me it's much easier than stuffing the peppers.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This soup is amazing! It smells and tastes just like stuffed peppers. When cooking, people will think you have stuffed peppers baking in the oven. The addition of V8 adds to the flavor. Next time I make this, I'm going to double the recipe!


1 lb
ground round, or turkey, even venison
2 c
V8 juice, low sodium
2 c
fresh or frozen chopped green peppers
1 c
dry instant rice (Minute Rice)
3 c
beef broth or stock, low fat
2 can(s)
14.5 oz petite diced tomatoes
1 c
fresh or frozen chopped onion
1 c
shredded cheddar cheese, optional
1-2 Tbsp
Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp
garlic powder
1 pinch
salt and pepper


1Brown the ground beef or turkey, with onions, until no pink shows. Drain.
2Put cooked meat & all ingredients -- except rice -- in a large crock pot. Stir until well mixed.
3Cover and cook on high 4 -5 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
4Before serving, stir in dry rice, cover again and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Top with cheese if desired. Makes about eight 1-cup servings.
