This is a great contest to enter... everyone loves tomato based recipes and Dei Fratelli's products are delicious and diverse. They have plain tomato ingredients, along with Italian and Mexican flavors so you can keep things interesting with different flavor palettes.
Here is my recipe for the contest and I plan on making another one with a Mexican flair.... oh, yes, by the way... my family loved this dish. You simply can't go wrong with tomatoes!
