When I saw this recipe in a newsletter I receive from Taste of Home, I knew I was going to make it! I love stuffed peppers and the thought of making it as a soup sounded so delicious.
I almost fell off my chair when I saw how much sodium was in a one-cup serving. 1,158 milligrams, yikes! There's no way I'm eating anything with that much sodium in it, ever! I modified the recipe by using tomato sauce and diced tomatoes with the lowest amount of sodium that I could find. I only used 1 teaspoon of beef bouillon and salt. Next time I make it, I will probably leave the salt out. I think it would taste just fine.
This recipe makes a large amount! We're going to be eating it for awhile. The weather is supposed get cooler so I think I made just at the right time.
