You can certainly get creative with this recipe for Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup to make it your own. Some possible ideas:

  • Substitute ground turkey or ground chicken for the ground beef
  • Use Italian sausage
  • If you have fresh tomatoes in your garden, use those in place of the canned.
  • Use brown rice instead of white.
  • Basmati and Jasmine are good rice choices also
  • Try adding on a few fresh herbs, like, Thyme, Rosemary or Cilantro
  • I like to use a combination of peppers for color but you can just use one type if desired.

Store the soup in the refrigerator for up to one week in a covered container. Just heat and serve.

Can the Stuffed Pepper Soup be Frozen.

You can freeze the soup. Place in a freezer storage bag or airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. I like to freeze in individual serving sizes. This way if one person in the family needs to grab something to eat between activities, it makes it so easy to grab, thaw under hot wat or in the microwave and eat.

Thawing and Serving

The soup can be thawed under hot water or in the microwave. If you have enough time, simply thaw in your refrigerator overnight.


  • If soup is too thick after storing or freezing, simply add a bit of beef broth, chicken broth, vegetable broth or tomato juice to it. The thickness comes from the rice absorbing the liquid.
  • Be sure to rinse your rice before adding to the soup to remove excess starch.
  • If using leftover already cooked rice, add it in after the soup has cooked.
