All of the flavors of a delicious stuffed bell pepper, made in the slow cooker.
Cook the ground beef, drain the fat, and pour into a 5 qt or larger slow cooker.
Wash and remove the tops and stems of both peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Cut peppers into chunks and peel off the peeling as you would an apple. Place the bell pepper in the slow cooker.
Add in all other ingredients EXCEPT the rice. Stir well, place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on low 6 hours or high 4 hours.
About 15 minutes before the soup is finished cooking, cook 2 cups of long grain rice according to package directions. Stir the rice into the cooked soup, serve hot, and enjoy!
