I have been experimenting with the Paleo diet plan to help my whole family lose weight. I love finding dishes like this one that are full of flavor. By using the new DelMonte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomato varieties, I am able to create a whole new palette of dishes that are rich in flavor, yet cut calories by not using traditional dressings and oils. The new Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes are the perfect way to spice up main dishes and snacking recipes. The big thing about the Paleo diet is using vegetables and fruits without any processed foods. Del Monte canned tomatoes, fruits and vegetables contain the same essential nutrients as fresh varieties. The majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day, to ensure nutrients and flavor are locked in.

  1. That looks delish! I haven’t tried the Paleo Diet yet, but I have heard lots of great things about it.

  2. This recipe looks really good. I would like to try this in my weekly menu. I’m gonna add it to my grocery list! I think my kids will like it, although I am not too sure how they will do with the chipotle diced chile’s. I’ve used those a couple of times in other recipes and they either love it or hate it. I always love them!
