Ingredients

  • Extra Lean Ground Turkey: We love using extra lean ground turkey for this recipe. It is a lighter and healthier option than using either lean ground beef or ground beef.
  • Onion: We prefer using fresh chopped onions for this recipe. Love the flavor, hate the tears that ensue while chopping.
  • Diced Tomatoes: One can of diced tomatoes is needed in this recipe. We prefer looking for diced tomatoes that are low in sodium or salt-free.
  • Tomato Sauce: The tomato sauce serves as the delicious base of this weight watchers soup.
  • Green Peppers: You’ll need three cups of peppers for this recipe. We like to use green pepper and red peppers, but yellow peppers and orange peppers also work great.
  • Red Peppers: Red pepper is my favorite flavor of peppers. It tastes great in this recipe, but if you have a favorite color of pepper, feel free to use that for the stuffed pepper soup recipe.
  • Low Sodium broth or water: You can use broth on hand, either chicken broth, vegetable broth, or beef broth. Just be sure to make sure the broth is low sodium. Water also works great for this weight watchers recipe.
  • Garlic: This recipe calls for a clove of garlic, you can also use minced garlic, but this recipe is delicious even when the whole clove is included vs. mincing it.
  • Black pepper:
  • Oregano:
  • Brown rice: (dry) I prefer short grain brown rice because it cooks faster and is more tender. Be sure that your brown rice is dry – in the instant pot and stovetop methods, the brown rice will cook while the stuffed pepper soup cooks.

How to make Weight Watchers Stuffed Pepper Soup in the Slow Cooker

This is an easy and filling recipe! These are the Crock Pot instructions, but you can find both stovetop and pressure cooker instructions below!
This recipe takes about 15 minutes of prep time followed by 6-8 hours of cook time in the Crock Pot.

  3. A note: Your rice should be added at least 1 hour before the end of cooking. You can also use cooked rice and add it to the slow cooker at the end of your cooking time, right before you serve it. I prefer adding cooked rice to this recipe instead of cooking it in the slow cooker.
  4. Cook Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Recipe Tips

  • Weight Watchers points go down when you use fat free meat. I used fat free ground turkey in this recipe. If you’re using another fat content or type of meat, please recalculate your points.
  • If using long grain brown rice, you’ll want to cook it for a few extra minutes.
  • To make this recipe gluten free, just use gluten free pasta! This has a lower cook time than traditional pasta.
  • The recipe is perfect for meal prep–it stays well in the fridge all week, and freezes and reheats like a dream! When you are finished making the stuffed pepper soup recipe, transfer the soup to smaller meal-prep friendly containers. It’s the perfect size for individual servings on the go.
  • We tend to go easy on using any additional salt in our recipes. We recommend that you taste the finished product and see if you need to add salt to the stuffed pepper soup. We think it’s perfect without, but everyone has different levels of salt they enjoy in meals.
  • To make this a lower carb recipe, swap the pasta for cauliflower rice that has been cooked–add it about 5 minutes before serving.
  • When browning ground meat, recipes often call for you to drain fat before the next step. Our lean ground turkey is lean enough that there won’t be much fat to worry about draining.
  • Different brands calculate differently, so to be certain of your points I’d recalculate using the WW points calculator for the ingredients and brands that you’re using.

This recipe has been improved! If you’re a fan of the previous recipe, you can find it right here–you’ll just be switching the seasonings. Instead of using the black pepper, garlic, and oregano above you’ll use these measurements:

  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    where are the measurements? how much broth, tomatoes?

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      Hi there,
      Measurements are at the bottom of the page on the printable recipe card.
      It’s 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes, 15oz tomato sauce, and 2 cups of broth. You’ll find the rest of the ingredients and their measurements on the recipe card :)

  2. 4 stars
    This turned out delicious! The garlic and onion were a little strong, but still delicious! I substituted the brown rice for riced-cauliflower for an even healthier twist.

  3. I’ve made this a couple times now (with the beef) and ready to make again even though it’s hot summertime. Didn’t think i would be a fan, but I love it! So nice to have several servings left over in the freezer for a quick meal anytime.

  4. I just made this today. I put lots of bell peppers in as that’s my favorite part of stuffed peppers!
    Will be freezing in single servings as I live alone. Will be good as the cooler weather comes about!

  5. This is absolutely one of the best recipes I have made. I freeze mine because I live alone and add rice when I reheat. Delicious!

  6. 5 stars
    This was delicious. Came up to 4 points for the blue plan.

  7. Anonymous says:

    What is the serving size?

    1. About 2 cups, but it’s always most accurate to divide your recipe into 8 equal servings to check that :)

  8. 5 stars
    This recipe is an absolute keeper. I fixed it in the Instant Pot using lean grass fed ground beef and it was so good. My husband loved it as well. Thanks for a tasty and super easy to fix, low point soup.

  9. 4 stars
