Fan Comments

  • 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!!!!!
  • 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 am writing to let you know how much my family and I love your tomatoes. They are delicious. Thanks for making such amazing products.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Your whole peeled tomatoes are a wonderful product. We use them in vegetable recipes, Italian recipes, etc.
  • Wow, I’m really impressed with the quality of your whole peeled tomatoes.
  • I have tried and used many different brands but wow nothing even comes close in comparison to the wonderful taste and quality of Red Gold.
  • When I am seeking canned tomatoes, Red Gold is my brand of choice. The quality is always consistent.
  • Thanks for great tasting products they always seem to be fresh.
  • I just discovered the Red Gold Family of products this year and am very happy with them. I enjoyed the thick richness of the sauces and the taste, texture, and appearance of all diced products. I am a true fan.
  • I like using Red Gold tomatoes in my spaghetti. It is wonderful to use to thicken up the sauce. Thank you for making such a great product!
  • I am always on the hunt for quality foods and I just wanted to let you know that we love your tomatoes at my house! Keep up the great work!
  • I have been using ONLY  Red Gold products for at least 15 yrs.  PURE tomato flavor! Love all forms of the products, diced are used the most.

Thick and rich chili with an ingredient that might surprise some...a little sweetness to balance the tomatoes, and it’s not sugar. You don’t have to share your secret...and we won’t tell either!

    This has been our easy, go to chili recipe for years. When I make this I omit the green peppers and onions because there are plenty in the canned tomatoes and I add couple handfuls of elbow macaroni to turn this into a chili-mac.  I often double this recipe and freeze half of it (minus the macaroni) to serve later. It freezes wonderfully!

    Good basic recipe.  I used McCormick Chili "Tex-Mex" seasoning and added a teaspoon of ground clove and a teaspoon of allspice, and cooked it for an hour on low/medium heat.  Had a nice "bite" to it.
