Celebrate the SuperBowl with Del Monte Southwestern Tomatoes - Giveaway


The Super Bowl is coming up on Sunday so Chefy and I have been working hard coming up with the perfect Super Bowl Party Menu!!  We are a foodie family and we love to entertain our friends and family.  This year we have kicked some of our recipes up a notch by adding Del Monte Southwestern Tomatoes to them! Chili is a huge request every time, and by adding Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies and Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies to the recipe, we brought our A game!  Since we sample every recipe before the party, we made up a batch, and it was eaten faster than usual!

Del Monte sent me the Southwestern tomatoes to try and they were perfect in the chili.  Here is the recipe we made, with the changes! 

2 lb.  ground beef
2 pkts Chili Seasoning
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2  onions, chopped
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp.  tomato paste
4 cans  (15.5 oz.) small red beans, undrained
1 can Del Monte® Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
1  can Del Monte® Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies
1 can  (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can of Tomato Sauce

Brown  beef in hot oil in large saucepan on medium heat; drain. Add onions and garlic; cook 5 min. or until onions are tender, stirring occasionally. 
Stir in chili seasoning; cook 2 min. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Bring to boil; simmer on low heat 30 min., stirring occasionally.
Serve topped with cheese or sour cream.

    I would go for the Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies (I didn't even know that they packaged this) and make Texas Chili with it - though your recipe looks mighty good too.
