Before I share this soup recipe, I know I have some new readers this year – so let me introduce you to the cook behind the recipes on Women Living Well ~ my real life friend and birthday twin (we share the same birthday) Janelle!
A year and a half ago, we stood on a friend’s deck looking out over a beautiful pond and I sighed…and said “I’m so overwhelmed with my blog.  I just can’t keep up.”  Janelle, who is always an encourager asked, “is there anyway I can help you?” 
I confided in Janelle, “for over a year, every Tuesday I’ve posted a Tasty Tuesday post with a recipe – but I’m running out!  Cooking is not really my forte, although I do it every night.”
Janelle, who ALWAYS has an arm full of food every time I see her and who has a meal ministry at our church, said – “I can take pictures when I cook and you can use them.”
Praise the LORD!  That day Janelle was a God-send and since then she has faithfully provided a fabulous Friday recipe for Women Living Well.  I make most of her recipes posted here and she has even started her own AH-MAZING blog! 
Her blog is titled “Comfy In The Kitchen“.  So if you need help getting comfy in your kitchen – check out her quick easy recipes – allergy and gluten free recipes – low-fat recipes – high fat, pretty recipes lol! – recipes for delivering to new moms, or recipes that you can serve to large groups (50+).  The blog Comfy in the Kitchen is there to serve YOU!
 So let’s get started with her first recipe of 2012!  I LOVE my crock pot so I’m always up for a new recipe for it!  Janelle writes:
Stuffed Pepper Soup tastes like the “real” thing…it is so simple, yet SO satisfying. A meal in itself! Left overs are just as good…or you can take some over to your neighbor ;) 

(this is a naturally allergy friendly food!)

Crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, green peppers, red peppers, vegetable and beef broth, rice ( ground beef and seasoning not shown).

Brown ground beef in a large skillet and drain.

Add all ingredients and seasonings into a crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours. You simply add uncooked rice and it will cook inside the broth! So easy.

A wonderful soup for a chilly winter day. It smelled just like stuffed peppers in my home!

  1. This sounds like such a wonderfully comforting soup, and it’s great that you can make it in the crock pot! I always enjoy reading Janelle’s lovely blog, and her posts here on Women Living Well. And of course, I enjoy reading your posts too! Happy New Year to you and your family.

  2. This soup is a favorite in my house so just a few tips. You can substitute the ground beef for ground turkey or ground venison and it is just as yummy! Also, this soup freezes really well! If you have leftovers and would like to save it for another meal down the road, place in a freezer bag or container, label it and when you are ready to use it again, put it in your crock pot on low for 8+ hours. You can also, let it thaw some in your fridge the night before and place it in your crock pot the next morning. Easy peasy! 🙂

    1. Oh and one more thing, if you don’t have broth that’s ok! I have in a pinch used water with some bouillon cubes and it works out just fine.

  3. I recently bought a crock pot and have not “broken it in” yet. This recipe will be on my list as soon as I get over my stomach flu 🙁 Almost recovered!

  4. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
    Looks soooo good!
    I am always looking for easy healthy recipes for the week.

  5. I follow her too! (^_^)*

    I made her beef and broccoli dish the other day and my family wanted more, but there was no more in the pan. Her recipes are amazingly delicious!

    If you’re having trouble deciding what to do for dinner, browse her blog for about a minute or two. You’ll find something that you want to make. Guaranteed!

  6. I made this for dinner last night. It was so easy to make and turned out delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!

  7. I have this in the crock pot right now! So excited to try it tonight. However, I thought I had a large crock pot but mine still must not be as big as yours. I had a little spillage over the sides once I put my lid on! Oh well! 🙂

  8. I made this and the soup never thickened. The only thing I did differently was use brown rice over jasmine rice. Help!!!

  9. I made this today and it was delicious! I did however half it and instead of diced tomatoes i just pureed a can and put it in. I also used quinoa instead of rice-delish!

  10. I am making this Sunday as I have started a tradition with my family to have “Soup Sunday”. I am wondering if it can be cooked on low 8+ hours. I like to let my crock pot things cook overnight.

  11. I do not have vegetable broth but do have extra beef broth. Will that really effect the outcome or taste ? I made it before with both types and it was a HUGE hit. Don’t want to disappoint the 2 time around.
