Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off Sweepstakes Plus Chili Recipe and $25 Gift Card Giveaway [Closed]

Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes

I am not a football fan, but I am a fan of hanging out with friends and family while enjoying great food. That is precisely why the Super Bowl is such a big deal–even if you don’t particularly enjoy football, it’s very difficult not to enjoy a good party.

If you’re still on the hunt for last-minute game day recipes for a get-together you are hosting or attending (Miss Manners says it’s always polite to bring something), new Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut Diced Tomato varieties provide an excellent base for countless recipes–and I was able to use these new products in a slow cooker chili recipe.

The last few times I made chili, it was lacking the spice and robust flavor I was looking for, so I decided to take advantage of the flavors in the Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies and Chipotle Chilies.


The flavor in the tomatoes made a world of difference, and the chili came out pretty incredible. The flavors are bold, you can taste them right away, and there is a kick of spice that is perfect for chili.

I also made up a pan of sweet cornbread to go with it, which I will be sharing the recipe for as part of my weekly baking project.
