How to Store Leftover Stuffed Pepper Soup
You can store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for about 5 days. But my favorite thing about leftover pepper soup is how well it freezes! I take the leftovers and put them in portion-sized containers in the freezer. When the hubby travels, I have dinner as fast as I can thaw it!
