Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’m not a huge fan of green peppers and a few months back I found myself with a handful of them in the fridge. I had forgotten to edit a previous Imperfect Product box and the peppers had been in the fridge for awhile and needed to be eaten quickly. Out of a desire to disguise them in something that would make them taste less green pepperish, I came up with an Instant Pot soup. It’s turned out to be delicious. I’ll caveat this one that my kids don’t really eat anything that combines food, so I usually make this for lunch for me to eat all week.
