Stuffed Pepper Meatball Soup

Stuffed Pepper Meatball Soup is the perfect soup to take the winter chill off! Just like the title says, it's a soup with all the ingredients of a stuffed pepper in wonderful soup form! It'll have you craving a second bowl!

Today, January 19th is National Soup Swap day! the entire month of January is National Soup month! So what better way to celebrate than to share/ swap soup recipes with some blogger friends of mine!
I am sharing this Stuffed Pepper Meatball Soup and below you'll see all the other soups we are sharing/swapping!

If you've never heard of Stuffed Pepper Soup, it's actually quite popular, you'll find recipes all over the Internet. I came across it in the recipe section of my local paper, and clipped it out waiting on a great excuse to try it, and today was the perfect excuse! My family is so glad I did!


The version I clipped used  made from scratch meatballs, other recipes I looked up used plain ground hamburger. I modified my version to make my own style, and used my  Soup Pantry staple: Mini Brat Meatballs for soup PLUS ground hamburger to make it even more hearty! I love using brat sausage and rolling tiny little meatballs for soup (remove casing) it adds instant flavor! By adding the additional hamburger I added just that extra touch of heartiness and it's more reminiscent of stuffed peppers also, so I keep that more traditional taste.


With green and red bell peppers, rice and a rich broth and tomato base this soup just warms you body and soul!  This soup is definitely going into my rotation of fall and winter soups!
