Hearty, comforting, warm and incredibly flavorful Stuffed Pepper Soup.

Stuffed Pepper Soup |

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope your weekend is going well!!

Say, have you ever bought 4 bell peppers and only found 1 the next day? Like, seriously. Who eats 3 bell peppers, uncooked and unstuffed? Who does that?!  

I have a little 17-month old that eats everything. Everything. No joke. She killed a pomegranate two days ago. I was shocked.

8 teeth and she’s already biting into bacon.

My suspicions are pointing towards her because at the very ripe age of 14-months, she walked to the garden, picked a pepper and inhaled it. But, then again, we are talking about 3 large bell peppers! There’s no way I would have missed that.

Maybe her dad helped…

So what’s a woman to do with one bell pepper and enough beef-rice-pepper-stuffing for four? Make Stuffed Pepper Soup!

My mom used to make this soup quite often, except that we didn’t call it soup, we called it/call it “mahn-dja”. Any stew-type meal is, in fact, called a mandja in Macedonian.

Really, though, this soup, or mandja, or delicious, sexy thang is kinda amazing. Hearty, comforting, warm and incredibly flavorful. If you’ve got some Uncle Ben’s chillin’ in your cupboards, take him outta there and have him meet up with some ground beef. They are going to LOVE each other! Trust me!

    I made the stuffed pepper soup, it was delish, and will be a keeper. I added 1 large can of tomato sauce.It turned out great. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Dana

    The Stuffed Pepper Soup is the bomb and hearty enough to serve for dinner with a salad! I used ground turkey, brown rice, and low sodium beef broth to lend a beefy richness. Didn’t have any tomatoes so I used a can of diced tomatoes as suggested. So easy, so good! Thanks for sharing! I will be making this again!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Dana!!

      I am SO happy to hear that you loved it!! It’s one of my top faves, as well! Thank YOU!

      1. Eric Wilson

        My husband just had emergency tooth extractions, and bone grafts where they literally had to cut his gums down to the bone. I’m going to try this recipe and make sure he can eat it easily.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Karen! Yes, go ahead and drain the meat. I’ll make note of it in the recipe. Thank you!! πŸ™‚

  3. Deborah Caudill

    If I won, I would attempt to make my grandmother’s delicious homemade apple dumplings with her recipe.

  4. Maria

    That would be a birthday cake for my son who will be turning 15 this month! Thanks for the chance to win…hope I’m the lucky duck! πŸ˜‰


    If I win.. after picking myself off the floor from shock..I would make the pumpkin cinnamon rolls listed here, I also pinned them

  6. Laurie @ Food is Love

    This is a Fantastic idea! Love how hearty and rustic it is for a cold winter’s night! Can;t wait to use it in Feb! Thanks for posting!

  7. Tonia

    Your soup sounds amazing! I love soup, especially in the winter. I would love to win a new Kitchen Aid because I fear that mine is going to die due to overuse. I would make something with peppermint & chocolate.

  8. Michael

    Stuffed Peppers (or Capsicums as we call them in Australia) – YUMM! Especially Michael’s recipe! My wife thinks I’m brilliant! Well, that’s one for me, anyway. The rest of the time? Not so lucky. Any other husbands out there do most of the cooking in their households?

  9. Jen L

    I would make the chocolate tunnel cake that my grandson is always asking for the pound cake that is my hubby’s favorite

  10. Susan

    I’d make breads & cookies, and all kinds of goodies – the holidays are coming!

    That soup looks super, I want to make that, but I don’t think I’ll use the mixer for it. πŸ™‚

  11. Mary

    This looks so good! I love stuffed peppers and if I read correctly it looks gluten free. I’m definitely going to give a try. Thank you!

  12. Kate | Food Babbles

    Too funny! That sounds like my 4 year old. She LOVES bell peppers, especially red ones and she will eat a whole one all by herself. I love how creative you got with your remaining pepper. This sounds fantastic! Thank you so much for helping me to celebrate my 3rd blogiversary!

  13. Emily @ Life on Food

    I love stuffed peppers but never seem to get the peppers roasted just right. This soup sounds super yummy and perfect solution to my roasting problems.

  14. Kim C.

    There are so many things I would want to make, but I think I would choose to make Christmas cookies first since the holiday is fast approaching and I make A LOT!!

  15. Robin O

    I am laughing a loving that your daughter is such and adventurous eater! Great soup recipe it hits all the comforting flavors of stuffed peppers.

  16. A_Boleyn

    I’d probably make a cheesecake filling for a Xmas cheesecake … white chocolate, chunks of candy cane and mint added to the filling and poured over a chocolate cookie crumb.

  17. karen

    I have a hard time deciding exactly what I would first make with a Kitchen-Aid Mixer. Dessert definitely. Either a pumpkin cheesecake or maybe some chocolate chunk cookies.

  18. Tammy Northrup {Yours and Mine ARE Ours}

    We have this soup often and love it but we always put tons of peppers in it because that’s my favorite part. πŸ™‚ I would make cookies first if I win! Thanks for the great giveaway.

  19. Angi Ignarski

    I would make my famous cranberry cheesecake! Because using handheld beaters is for the birds! This is a HUGE cheesecake and I need some power!! KitchenAid to the rescue!

  20. kathy payerchin

    I have wanted a KitchenAid mixer since I got married almost 43 years ago! I would make yummy Christmas cookies!

  21. Jennifer Collver

    If I won the stand mixer the first thing I would make would be chocolate chip cookies, because when I was little that’s what I always made with my mom with her KitchenAid stand mixer πŸ™‚

  22. Janet T

    The first thing I would make would be homemade whipped cream for my pumpkin spice latte. After that, I would make a batch of dough for cinnamon rolls.

    I love all the colors of the KitchenAid mixer!

    Looking forward to making your soup. Perfect recipe for fall.

  23. Kirsten

    Please send your daughter over to my house. I keep getting a bunch of peppers in the CSA farm share and we are not eating them fast enough. I’ve chopped and frozen a tray full to tuck into meatloaf and similar over the winter, but still the peppers keep coming.
    This soup looks wonderful!
