EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

You can also use regular cream cheese spread instead of the garden vegetable flavor. Just make sure it is the reduced-fat variety, which is softer and spreads more easily than regular cream cheese.

Be sure to pat the peppers and meat slices dry with a paper towel. The packaged meat is typically quite moist, and the cream cheese may be harder to spread.

Save yourself some time by assembling the rolls up to 24 hours ahead. Slice them just before serving.
