Zesty Game Day Bites and a Giveaway

Next Sunday I hear there is some big game on TV. Kidding. The Baltimore Ravens versus the San Francisco 49ers. I keep up. I'm not a huge football fan but somehow I usually watch the big game. Here's a recipe that would be a perfect Super Bowl Sunday snack.

A packed with flavor version of my Bites (aka mini Crustless Quiche.) Oodles of protein, vegetarian, kid-friendly, healthy and delicious.

Shelly's Zesty Game Day Bites

2 Green Onions, diced
1/2 cup canned Del Monte Diced Tomato with Green Chilies
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 cup canned Black Beans, rinsed and drained
5 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
a few twists of Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients together.

Spoon into lightly greased (Pam non-stick spray works great for this) mini muffin tins.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Let them cool a few moments they pull away and pop right out. Makes 24.

In this recipe I used new Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes. Del Monte was kind enough to provide me a sample of each of the new flavors. They are delicious. A nice way to zest up a dish. I can see mixing these into my mini meatloaves, casseroles or soups.

To celebrate the new flavors Del Monte is launching the "Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick-Off Sweepstakes" on Pinterest, a chance to share entertaining tips and recipes, featuring the new Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomato varieties. One lucky winner will take home an exciting entertainment package including: a Sony® 55” LED TV, Bose® home theater system and Sony® Blu-ray player (ARV $4,779.00 USD). I entered, you should, too. I hope one of my readers is the lucky winner of that.
