This is one of my all time favorite soups! It's thick and hearty similar to a chili, but has the same flavor as traditional stuffed peppers! Using extra-lean ground beef, 98% fat free beef broth, and brown rice make this recipe surprisingly healthy. It's very easy to make and also freezes well. Serve up with some crusty bread and you have a one pot dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs extra lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 3 large green bell peppers, diced

  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans tomato soup
  • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans low-sodium low-fat beef broth
  • 1 (32 ounce) can diced tomatoes (I like petite diced, could also use crushed)
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice

  1. Brown ground beef in a large pot. Drain off fat after it is cooked.
  2. Add diced peppers and onions to pot.
  3. Pour in tomato soup, beef broth, and diced tomatoes.
