Make an easy, tasty soup with this Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup!
This Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup has been a go-to for our family for many years and it was past due to be put in the spotlight again!
This particular recipe is a classic twist to our traditional Stuffed Peppers with a brothy base.
Can you make this soup in the Ninja Foodi?
It can also easily be made in the Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker using the slow cooker function. If you do this, be sure to use the pressure cooker lid with the nozzle set to “VENT”. The remaining instructions will be the same.
When I am not using my Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker, I use my Ninja Slow Cooker. I’ve had this particular slow cooker for years and it’s become my old faithful go-to for slow cooker meals.
Tips for Making Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup:
The most important thing to remember when making this soup is to add in the rice at the end of the cooking time. It needs to be served just shortly after adding in the rise or the rice will soak in all of the liquid.
If this were to happen then you can easily use the stuffing to put into tortillas; however, to keep it nice and brothy for soup, be sure to serve it immediately.
We typically serve this with tortilla strips they pair well with this recipe.
It can also be made gluten-free, just use gluten-free taco seasoning and all other swaps should be naturally gluten-free. As always be sure to check all ingredients first.
If you prefer that your soup is more spicy, add in some jalapenos to add heat to it. This soup as written is very mild.
