Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

We're big fans of spicy foods and soups in our house so it just made sense to combine the two and create this stuffed pepper soup in the Instant Pot. Not only does the flavor knock it out of the park, but this soup reheats like a dream for leftovers as well.

Are poblano peppers hot?

They're a bit spicier than other peppers but that heat can range from mild to spicy. This is another reason why this pepper soup recipe is so much fun to don't know if it's going to be mild in flavor or spicy. It all depends on the flavor of the poblano pepper!

What is equivalent to a poblano pepper?

The pepper that would be closest to a poblano pepper is a chili pepper. However, if you want to take the spice out of this soup recipe entirely, you can always use a bell pepper as well.
