Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick Off Sweepstakes & Giveaway

Superbowl is tomorrow! I'm not really a fan of either team that's playing, but I am a fan of all of the delicious foods that Superbowl brings:) I'm making a pot of our favorite chili (recipe here), and I'll be adding Del Monte's new diced tomatoes!

Del Monte has two new varieties of diced tomatoes available: diced tomatoes with green chiles & diced tomatoes with chipotle chiles.

Diced tomatoes are one of the main staples in my pantry; I throw them into just about every soup and chili I make, as well as dips, Mexican dishes, and more. Del Monte canned vegetables contain the same essential nutrients as the fresh varieties, so they are my go-to brand when stocking up. 

Giveaway:  Del Monte has offered to provide a gift pack to one reader that includes:
(1) Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles
(1) Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chiles
(1) $25 Visa giftcard

Leave a comment on this post sharing what recipe you'd like to try using diced tomatoes, and you will be entered to win this gift pack. One winner will be chosen randomly and announced February 15. U.S. mailing addresses only, please. Updated: the winner is #10 Wendy Rozema. Thanks for playing!

Sweepstakes:  To help inspire creativity in the kitchen, Del Monte has launched the "Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off Sweepstakes" on Pinterest.
