  • I recently purchased Red Gold whole tomatoes and they were the best quality of canned tomatoes that I can remember purchasing. Thank you for such a great product.
  • The only canned tomatoes that I buy. They are better than any other brand, including San Marzano tomatoes. The tomatoes are firm and whole, not broken up into pieces floating around in the juice like others.

  • Your canned tomatoes are the best. I use the whole peeled tomatoes...just as good as my canned tomatoes from my garden, thank you for such a fine product. You are to be commended.
  • I had never used your products until the other day and decided to try them to make a pot of chili. We were very pleased to know we were helping to support the Midwest farming community. We'll be buying more...It's a THUMBS UP!!!!!

This cheesy bacon and bean dip is creamy and delicious. A welcome change from the typical processed cheese dip on most game day menus! Another fantastic Amy Thielen recipe developed exclusively for Redpacj!


2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, or pepper Jack cheese
1 teaspoon cornstarch
8 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 (15 ounce) can butter beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can Redpack® Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 (4 ounce) can green chilies
2 ounces cream cheese
2 teaspoons whiskey
1 large avocado, thinly sliced
Cilantro for garnish


  • Preheat the broiler, setting the top rack 6 inches below the coil.
  • In a small bowl combine the cheese and cornstarch; toss to combine and set aside.
  • Heat a large oven-proof (preferably cast-iron) skillet over medium heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add the bacon and cook until browned at the edges. Remove to a bowl, leaving 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the butter beans, tomatoes with their juice, and the cream cheese, stirring to combine. Cover the pan and cook for 2 minutes, until the cream cheese melts. Add the whiskey and 1 cup of the cheese and stir until melted.
  • Garnish the top with the remaining cheese and broil until the top is browned, about 8 minutes.
  • Arrange the sliced avocado on top and garnish with a few tufts of cilantro; serve with chips.
