  • 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!!!!!

  • Chili Mac and Cheese
PREP: 15 minutes

SERVINGS: 4 to 6
This delicious chili mac and cheese with ground beef, diced tomatoes, onion, garlic and spices is cooked all in one pot--including the macaroni!" 
Recipe by Laura Vitale, from Laura in the Kitchen


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 (28 ounce) can Redpack® Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cups water
1 cup milk
8 ounces elbow macaroni, or any short cut posta of your choice
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
4 green onions, sliced thin
Hot sauce, optional


  • In a large heavy bottom pot, add the olive oil and preheat over medium high heat. Add the ground beef along with the onion and a small pinch of salt. Cook the mixture for about 5 to 6 minutes or until the ground beef is fully cooked and the onions have developed some color (make sure to break up the ground beef as much as you can using a wooden spoon.) Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, spices, water and milk; stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the pasta, adjust the seasoning to taste, cover the pot with a lid and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, remove from the heat, stir in the sour cream and cheese. Stir until sour cream and cheese are melted and well combined. Serve in a bowl topped with green onions.
  • Optional: For a spicier flavor add a couple drops of hot sauce.
