If you love stuffed bell pepper soup, but want a low-carb option or just don’t love rice (like myself) this Low-Carb Spicy Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup without rice is for you! Don’t worry, it’s still stuffed with flavor! I like to bring the heat to this soup up by adding a jalapeño and extra spices! This recipe has all the classic flavors spiced up without the added carbs.

A Few Ingredients You Will Need:

  • LOTS of Bell Peppers – Bell peppers are an excellent addition to a healthy diet! They are low in calories and full of antioxidants and vitamins A and C.
  • Ground Beef – I use lean (90/10) ground beef for this recipe to reduce the fat and calories.
  • Jalapeño – I leave the seeds in for an added kick of spice, but you can take the seeds out if you want less spice.
  • Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes – The fire roasted diced tomatoes give this soup more depth and a smoky flavor. I use the brand Rotel.
  • Spices – cumin, oregano, smoked paprika

Let’s Make This Low-Carb Spicy Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup

First, spray a Dutch oven with olive oil and brown the meat. Drain the beef if you need to, but using lean (90/10) meat won’t cause as much fat to accumulate. Next, add the chopped onions, peppers, and jalapeño. For this recipe, I wanted an added kick of spice so I left the seeds in the jalapeño.


Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 5-10 minutes until onions are translucent and peppers are softened. Add in the garlic and cook for another couple minutes. Add the spices, stir, and cook for another minute.


Finally, it’s time to add the tomato sauce, beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and fire roasted tomatoes to the Dutch oven. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for at least 30 minutes stirring occasionally.


I like to let soups and sauces simmer for an hour to allow the flavors to deepen and meld together. Grab a bowl and enjoy! Since traditional stuffed peppers are usually topped with cheese, you can top your soup with cheddar or pepper jack cheese.
