Taste of Tuesday: Red Gold Tomatoes Grilling Recipes

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Red Gold Tomatoes to see if I was interested in trying some of their new canned tomatoes and grilling recipes.  Some bloggers get jewelry and clothing.  I get canned tomatoes.  Go ahead and be jealous. 

I thought it would be fun to try some new recipes so I said sure, send me those tomatoes!


I was given 6 cans of different flavored tomatoes, a cute red apron and some recipes to try.  This past Sunday (our typical grill night) Jason and I made two of the recipes and oh my goodness they were yummy...and took all of 5 minutes to prepare!  These will become regular staples in our house. 

Spicy Tomato Burger
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles, drained very well
  • Salt and pepper to taste (we just used a pinch of salt, but a lot of pepper)

Mix all ingredients together, grill and cook to desired temperature! 

Garnish however you desire.  I used a medium cheddar cheese and Jason wanted some extra kick so he used jalapeno jack cheese. 

Jason's Masterpiece


My Masterpiece - I wanted to try both without blowing my diet

Caribbean Chicken Burger
  • 1 pound ground chicken (this would work great with lean turkey too)
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes w/Lime Juice & Cilantro {so yummy} OR 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle, drained very well. 
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used Saltine crackers)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together, grill and cook to desired temperature!  Serve with guacamole, avocado or roasted pineapple slice.  Top with mango chutney or fruit salsa. 

I garnished mine with a grilled pineapple slice and a scoop of mango pico de gallo from HEB and it was delish!  Jack gave his stamp of approval on this recipe too!



You can get more recipes here including a grilled tuna burger and Italian turkey burger that I want to try!  You can also enter to win Red Gold's Summer Grillin' Party Promotion for a Large Big Green Egg...which Jason is drooling over right now. 

I was not compensated for this post.  I was given the product and apron in order to try and review.  All opinions are my own.
