Crockpot Stuffed Pepper Soup

I totally stole this recipe, so here’s the link: Megan’s Slow Cooker Stuffed Pepper Soup

I didn’t even take a pic! This makes a HUGE batch (my crockpot was FULL), but freezes great. I used turkey instead of beef this time around and it was still delicious. And talk about easy…a great hearty soup for the upcoming cold months. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 green peppers, chopped
2 15oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 28oz cans tomato sauce
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 cup long grain brown rice (not instant)
1/4 cup brown sugar

Brown the beef in a large skillet and drain off fat. Place the cooked beef and the rest of the ingredients in a crock pot. Add two (28 oz) cans of water and stir. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. If needed, stir in extra water before serving.
