Del Monte Southwestern Tomatos Review & Giveaway **Closed**


 
Okay, guys, if you like some spice in your dishes, then Del Monte has the perfect pair of Tomatoes to help you do just that! I recently got to review 2 of them and they are:

1.) Petite Cut with Green Chilies
2.) Petite Cut with Chipotle Chilies
3.) They also sent a $25 Visa Card

I got the $25 Visa Card to help buy some ingredients to make a few dishes to try the tomatoes with. Since these are spicy products, hubby and his friends from work got to eat all the fruits of my labor, but at least they all had a great time and loved the chili I made with the Chipotle Chilies can of tomatoes from Del Monte.

I know most of my loyal readers know that I have Acid Reflux on top of a bladder condition that prohibits me from spicy foods, but I found a way to get my review and the opinion of a crew of 10 men and I think that is what makes this review so awesome! I was able to get 10 different men to tell my husband how they liked the chili with those Chipotle Chilies in them!

 
They all said that they were gonna tell their wives about the new tomatoes and have them get a can or two so that they can try it with their favorite recipes. So, that was a total success and I am so happy I found an alternative way to review these tomatoes.
 
 
I love Del Monte's Tomatoes and when I do buy them I do the ones for Italian dishes and then the plain ones. That way I can eat some of my dishes, although I can't eat as much as I used to because of the Reflux and as long as I watch how much I am eating, I taste tomatoes but not the spicy ones.
 
Oh, by the way, they are having a Del Monte® Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off Sweepstakes with Pinterest right now.
 
 
Here is how to get started:
  • Follow the Del Monte Brand on Pinterest
  • Create a Pinterest board named “Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off”
  • Pin at least two (2) Del Monte Tomato Recipes from the “Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off” Pinterest board and at least two (2) football entertaining ideas
  • Register your Pinterest board to the Del Monte page from January 21st through February 15th to be entered into the Del Monte® Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off Sweepstakes program
  • Get ready for a chance to win one of the many prizes available, including an ultimate entertainment package with a Sony® 55” LED TV, Bose® home theater system and Sony® Blu-ray player (ARV $4,779.00 USD). 
  • Official Sweepstakes Rules - http://bit.ly/11bK144 
Then I made another dish for Mike with my 13 Bean Soup and added the Green Chilies for him a few weekend's after the Chili to take to work and get the guys reaction again of the spicy 13 Bean Soup and made cornbread to go with it and it was an instant hit. Another guy brought in his wife's Mexican Cornbread so they had plenty to eat!
 

 
I am so Thankful that I have others to turn to when I get something that might not be good for me to eat.  It's not their fault that they did not know I can't spicy foods and I didn't realize that both would be spicy, but really it all worked out and instead of just me & hubby's opinion, we got 11 opinions counting him.
 
Check out all the different varieties of flavors of tomatoes that they have and see if any of them interest you or check them out the next time you go shopping for groceries! The plain ones and the Italian ones are just as good as the spicy ones and I have been using Del Monte my whole life (at least since I left home and got my own place).
 
Here is what Del Monte says about their products:
 
Del Monte fruits and vegetables are chock-full of flavor and packed with nutrition which includes plenty of age-fighting, immune-building and heart-strengthening antioxidants. Let’s do right by our bodies by eating more nutritious meals.
 
They have a Nutrition section along with a Recipe section that you can grab some awesome idea's to prepare new and exciting dishes for your family. If you are like me, I run out after awhile and we start the whole cycle again. So, it is good to try new things from time to time or else you might miss something that could truly rock your world as far as food goes.
 
The Inspired section is all about getting you up and moving and fit. They offer idea's of what foods is the best to eat and offer while at the same time watching out for your health. All of their canned food is filled with just as much essential nutrients as fresh ones have! Now, that is something I like!
 
I know alot of people go and get the food at the Farmer's Markets and prepare it themselves but in my experience they are alot higher in price and not all of us can afford fresh fruits and veggies, so knowing that Del Monte's canned versions are just as good warms my heart. The majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day, to ensure nutrients and flavor are locked in.  I can also appreciate that, too!
 
Found this in the About Us:
Del Monte Foods is one of the country's largest and most well-known producers, distributors and marketers of premium quality, branded food and pet products for the U.S. retail market, generating approximately $3.7 billion in net sales in fiscal 2010.  
We believe food that's good for you should taste good too. That's why Del Monte’s fruit, vegetables & tomatoes are grown in the best regions in America, then picked fresh and packed--without artificial flavors or additives-–to lock in that great Del Monte taste.
The awesome folks at Del Monte are going to give one winner the same package I received which is the 2 cans of tomatoes and the $25 GC to help you buy your ingredient's for your recipe! Open in the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!

I don't have a favorite. I use them for chili and stews and add enough spices that it doesn't really matter which I start with. As long as it doesn't get too hot. Love em all!
