I absolutely love stuffed peppers.  Not only are they a fun presentation, but you can stuff so much good flavor in them and change it up many different ways.  My pizza stuffed peppers are always a hit, and now we’ve added this instant pot stuffed pepper soup into the winner rotation!

This soup comes together in a snap, thanks to the instant pot!  Don’t have one? I’m sharing how to make stuffed pepper soup on the stovetop and in the slow cooker below as well.  I gotcha covered, friend.

Rainbow bell peppers

The star of our soup is… you guessed it, bell peppers!  I’m grateful to work with Pure Flavor® and feature their Sweet Bell Peppers.  I love the color that the yellow, orange and red bell peppers add to this soup. 

They taste amazing raw and cook up into perfect soft and delish bell peppers here.  Definitely don’t skimp on them!

Ground beef – substitute in ground turkey, chicken, pork, or bison here

Chicken bone broth – use beef bone broth or regular broth
