Del Monte Southwestern Tomatoes Kick Off Sweepstakes

Yesterday was the Super Bowl. I don't know how many of you watched but it was the perfect time to create some yummy dips and dishes. Lots of companies got into the whole celebration, including Del Monte with their Southwestern Tomatoes Kick Off Sweepstakes on pinterest that is going on right now! It's simple to enter. Just follow the directions below:

  • 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 DelMonte® 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 aSony® 55” LED TV, Bose® home theater system and Sony® Blu-ray player (ARV $4,779.00 USD).   
  • Official Sweepstakes Rules-
To spark some ideas and inspiration for you I even created my own pinterest board. Since the big game is already over I went more with a football themed party in general. I have a little boy who loves sports so I KNOW he would love a football party. Check out my board HERE.

Del Monte also sent me two of the Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomato varieties to try out. They were Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies and the Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Chilies. My family is already big fans of Del Monte canned veggies so we couldn't wait to try these out. The canned tomatoes, fruits and vegetables contain the same essential nutrients as the fresh varieties and they last longer. I don't know if you're like me but I change my mind a lot when I'm cooking and fresh veggies only last a few days in the fridge. As a matter of fact the majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day! That way the nutrients and flavors are locked in immediately! 

I'm not much of a fan of chipotle chilies so I went with the diced tomatoes with Green Chilies. It was the perfect substitution for another brand that we used in one of our favorite dips! It's simple to make. Just take 16 oz of cream cheese and soften in a crock pot. Meanwhile, brown some sausage (any brand and flavor you would like- we usually go with hot). When sausage is ready, pour it into the crock pot along with a can of the Del Monte Diced tomatoes and chilies and mix with the cream cheese. Instant dip that is perfect with tortilla chips! YUMMY!
