Stuffed Pepper Soup

As the early months press on, the weather gets colder. But fear not! As they say, it’s always the darkest before dawn. And we’re here to see you through to the dawn with a nice, comforting bowl of warm soup. This Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe comes from a friend of mine, passed along many, many ages ago.

Are you still committing to your New Year’s resolution to be healthy? Well if so, then good for you! Not many make it this far, so keep it up! Did you know that this soup can help you be healthy? That’s right! Peppers contain a lot of nutrients that benefit your health. If you like your food spicy it gets even better; hot food speeds up metabolism. It’s crazy to think that eating certain foods can help you lose weight.

Stuffed peppers take on a whole new form- soup!

This soup is best cooked in the Slow Cooker, low and slow, but it can also be cooked on the stove top if you’re in a hurry. Either way it tastes delicious! The original recipe uses ground beef, but if you prefer pork or Italian sausage you may use that instead of the ground beef. Or even, in addition to, maybe half and half. Try to experiment and make it your own!
