Our Instant Pot stuffed pepper soup has all the flavor of stuffed peppers without all the hassle. It’s an easy pressure cooker recipe everyone will love!
It might not feel like it, but Fall is fast approaching. Before long, we’ll go from mojitos and salads to spiced hot chocolates and soup.
In other words, it’s time to start sharing those warm and comforting dishes. We have to do something to stave off the cold temperatures.
For today’s recipe, Kim and I decided to share her Instant Pot stuffed pepper soup recipe. As I said above, it has all the flavor of stuffed peppers without all the fuss.
Shall we get started?
Stuffed Pepper Soup Instructions:
First, place the liner into the machine and set it to the, “saute,” function.
Next, add the ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and salt and pepper.
Now, let the mixture cook until the beef is browned. Meaning, there are no pink spots left in the meat.
Then, add the beef broth and use your spoon to scrap off anything that has stuck to bottom of the liner (deglaze the liner).
After that, turn off the Instant Pot and toss in the diced peppers and tomatoes, along with the tomato sauce and rice.
Stir the mixture to combine everything. At this point, you’ll want to place the lid on the cooker and seal the valve.
Press the manual or high pressure cook button. Make sure the timer is set for ten (10) minutes. Once the timer beeps, allow a five (5) minute natural release.
Last, carefully open the valve to release the remaining pressure and remove the lid. Stir the pepper soup.
That’s it, your Instant Pot stuffed pepper soup recipe is done! All you need to do is serve it. Kim and I hope you enjoy the soup and wish you all the best 🙂

How do you thicken red pepper soup?
You have a couple of options. A cornstarch slurry (cornstarch and water combined) works for most pressure cooker recipes.
On the other hand, you can also use melted butter and flour (blonde roux) and add that to the hot soup. Heat the soup while stirring until it reaches a thickness you’ll enjoy.
