This easy stuffed peppers recipe makes a simple substitution for the familiar recipes that call for popular canned tomato soups (which generally have both wheat and corn products on their labels).

If you’d prefer a more creamy soup you could use two cans of Amy’s Tomato Soup instead of the tomato sauce, or just add a bit of extra cream yourself.
