Stuffed Pepper Soup

Everything you love about stuffed peppers, but in the form of an easy and satisfying soup. Quick to whip up, this soup also freezes nicely.

All year round, I like to have soups available for speedy meals as often as possible.

This soup is a favorite of mine and on frequent rotation on my schedule because it comes together quickly, is budget friendly, and does not require hours of simmering.

To make things even faster and easier, I use chopped frozen green peppers and white ready-rice from a pouch from the grocery shelf.
