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!
  • To make this a lower carb recipe, swap the pasta for cauliflower rice that has been cooked–add it about 5 minutes before serving.
  • 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.

Ingredients

  • Extra Lean Ground Turkey
  • Onion
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Green Peppers
  • Red Peppers
  • Low Sodium broth or water
  • Garlic
  • Black pepper
  • Oregano
  • Brown rice, dry. I prefer short grain because it cooks faster and is more tender.

Slow Cooker Weight Watchers Stuffed Pepper Soup:

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.

  1. Sauté Brown the ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat until there is no more pink.
  2. Add ingredients to slow cooker Add the ground turkey, broth or water, tomatoes (including the juice), tomato sauce, chopped peppers and onions, black pepper, garlic, and oregano to 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.

Instant Pot Instructions

This method takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.

  1. Spray your pot with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil. Press the SautĂ© button and cook your ground turkey until it’s no longer pink.
  2. Add the broth or water, tomatoes (including the juice), tomato sauce, dry rice, bell peppers and onions, black pepper, garlic, and oregano.
  3. Close the lid and turn your valve to sealing. Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.
  4. When finished, release the pressure on the pot and remove the lid.

Stovetop Instructions

  1. SautĂ© the ground turkey in a large pot or dutch oven (large enough to cook your soup) until it’s no longer pink.
  2. Add the broth or water, tomatoes (including the juice), tomato sauce, chopped peppers and onions, rice, garlic, oregano, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes on medium-high, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Test the peppers to make sure they’re cooked enough for you before removing the soup from the stovetop.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  1. If using the instant pot, do you do a quick pressure release or a natural pressure release? Thank you!

    1. Melissa D. says:

      I did a quick release and turned out great!

  2. Nancy Stauch says:

    Hello this looks so delicious. I am wondering if you could provide the nutritional information so I can calculate the points value as I use the original points system. Thank you. :)

  3. What spices can i substitute for the 1.5 packets of chili seasoning? I don’t have that on hand. Thanks!

      1. Thanks, Becca!!

    1. I do not see chili seasoning? Was this changed? Thank you so much.

      Diane

      1. Hi Diane! It was – the original is at the bottom of the recipe, right above the printable recipe card:

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

      2. Thank you!

    We tried this soup last night for dinner and it was incredible! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

    I love how hearty this soup is while still being light and healthy! So delicious and turns out perfect in the instant pot!

  6. Judith Aponte-Randall says:

    Can you add Cauliflower rice instead or brown rice?

    1. Absolutely! You’ll want to cook the cauliflower rice for less time–adding it at the end would be good!

  7. I used the WW calculator with the nutrition information for this recipe and I got 4 points on blue.

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      Hi there,
      The points listed were for using fat free ground turkey. Maybe that’s what the difference was with your calculations?

  8. This recipe previously had chili seasoning. It was a favorite of my husband. What was the original recipe!

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      https://mycrazygoodlife.com/crock-pot-stuffed-pepper-soup-recipe/
      The original recipe is not on the recipe card in the link above, but it’s noted towards the bottom of the page :)
      If you’re a fan of the “old” seasoning recipe, it’s right here:

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

  9. In the recipe it says a serving size is approx. 2 cups, but in the comments you told someone it’s just over a cup. Can you clarify so that I no how much to eat? Also, how much would change if I used white rice instead of brown? Thank you!

    1. It’s about 2 cups–the recipe has changed slightly. It’s always best to divide your recipe up into equal servings to make sure you’re eating the correct amount.

      You’d have to recalculate the points depending on your plan–each one is different and white rice has different points values :)

    1. Sara Anderson says:

      Absolutely! This recipe freezes well and reheats great in the microwave :)

  10. I loved the flavors of this soup! My only disappointment was the brown rice was not fully cooked using the Instant Pot. My experience is that it takes longer than 8 minutes at huh pressure for brown rice. I will probably use white rice next time.

  11. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious! I added the chili powder to mine and love the flavor and so does my family!

  12. I was so excited for this recipe I did the stove top recipe and the rice is not done at all.. really disappointed I’ll just pre cook it next time

    1. I’m sorry the rice wasn’t cooked for you! Yes, maybe you’d rather precook or cook for longer on the stove. Different rice (and the age of the rice) has an impact on cooking time.

  13. 5 stars
    My husband loves this soup! So do I! Very simple and tasty. One of 4 soups I make regularly all winter. Sometimes I add half a chipotle pepper. We cook the rice ahead and add it at the end (stovetop method).

  14. 5 stars
    One of my “go to” recipes easy and delicious and it don’t get better than that!

  15. My wife and I loved this soup, however, the ingredient list does not call for salt. The INSTANT Pot Instruction says to add salt. For next time how much salt should be added

    1. I’m sorry about this, Les. I’d add salt to taste after cooking!

  16. What kind of broth? Beef?

  17. 5 stars
    Is the nutrition for one serving or the whole soup? It sounds amazing either way

  18. When I put the points in for blue it comes up as four points?

    1. Hi Colleen, if you’re using the nutrition info, it will be off from my counts. I calculate based on ingredients, which is what WW has said is most accurate.
