This soup combines all the goodness of classic stuffed peppers in tomato sauce into a hearty, one-pot main dish that’s perfect for chasing off the winter chill.



  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup roughly diced green peppers
  • 1 cup roughly diced red or yellow peppers
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced (~1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 can (398 ml / 14 oz) diced tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups cooked long-grain rice (preferably basmati)


  1. In a large pot or dutch oven set over medium-high heat, brown the turkey until cooked all the way through, using a wooden spoon to break up into chunks as it cooks.
  2. Add the peppers, onion, garlic, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper, and saute for 5-7 minutes or until the onions and peppers start to soften.
  3. Stir in the diced tomatoes and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.
  4. Stir in the cooked rice, and serve immediately.
