Stuffed Pepper Soup (Day 21)

I’ve signed up for a 31-day writing challenge.  Every day in October, I post a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previously posted slow cooker recipe, or a recipe from another blog.

Last night, my school had parent-teacher conferences.  Even though I only had one parent show up, last night was productive.  The parent who came was crying happy tears because of how much more confident her child has become this year.

Later after talking for a while, we both realized we were Christians.  The mom told another staff member and me about a great Christian singer, Jonathan McReynolds.  I ended up listening to his song “Pressure.”  It’s such a great song with a great message.

I hope you enjoyed listening to the message from Jon.  He is truly blessed by God.


Anyway, onto the recipe for today.

I made stuffed pepper soup on Monday using some of the bulk hamburgers I cooked up over the weekend.  I put the rice in the slow cooker when I put the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker.  The rice ended up falling apart after being cooked for that long.

If you make the soup and decide to put the rice in at the beginning, use brown rice instead of white like I did.  Or cook the rice at the end and then put it in the bowls as you serve the soup.  It’s your decision.

Oh, I used a 6-quart crock pot.
