My mother in law and husband make Czech stuffed peppers which are slightly different from traditional American style stuffed peppers. The peppers are not made in the oven. These peppers are normally made in a pot on the stove with loads of paprika.

Those peppers are called Plnená Paprika. I took the recipe for those and converted it to a soup. Hence then made the soup in the instant pot for ease. Less clean up, less pans, and super easy weeknight instant pot dinner.

Why I Love The Instant Pot Silicone Lid

Additionally, this bell pepper soup is fantastic for lunches. We make a pot of it, feed four, then there is a little left over the next day for lunch. Use the instant pot plastic lid to pull out the insert, seal, and place in the fridge. I need a second insert and lid to be able to rotate food easily.

Instant Pot soups are great for easy weeknight meals. I love to use the instant pot to make soup and use for lunches later. The instant pot is also handy for potlucks or making soup for those in need. I honestly couldn’t imagine not having an instant pot.

About The Rice

At first I was afraid to do the rice in the instant pot. I just thought it would be mush. I am happy to say I was wrong and glad I saved myself the time by adding it all together. After cooking we put it in the fridge and the rice was still just fine the next day.

  1. Every time I see an instant pot at Target I think of your blog, lol. All the recipes you post using that. But I haven’t bought one yet. My German – Czech mother in law makes something similar to this. She calls it “chewage”. One of my favorites of hers. However she doesn’t add paprika or beef broth. I think it would take it to another level. Your recipes are fantastic and I will be making your version of this soon !
