 Chili Recipe With Tuttorosso Tomatoes


Tuttorosso is an American based supplier of Italian-style canned tomato products, such as whole peeled tomatoes and original pasta sauce, that is primarily based in the southeastern United States, but they are expanding to the western U.S. currently. Recently they sent us a very nice package of their products to try and we put them to good use!

Tuttorosso Care Package

The package they sent included three 28 oz cans of tomato products, including Crushed Tomatoes, Tomato Sauce, and Peeled Pear Shaped Tomatoes. It also included a beautiful red cooking apron, a pot holder, a bottle cozy, a chart of cooking measurement conversions (this is REALLY handy),  and several recipe cards! Pretty sweet, huh?

The first recipe that we used the Tuttorosso products on was homemade chili beans. It’s cold outside, and a warm bowl of chili beans is a great way to warm yourself inside and out. We put the Tuttorosso Peeled Pear Shaped Tomatoes in our recipe, and it added a remarkable flavor that just accented our chili beans perfectly!

Chili Recipe With Tuttorosso Tomatoes

You will need..

One 28 oz can of Tuttorosso Peeled Pear Shaped Tomatoes

Four cans of dark red kidney beans

3 lbs. of lean ground beef

One 12 oz jar of hot banana pepper rings

Two packs of hot chili seasoning – or mild, if you’re scared 😉


Chili Recipe With Tuttorosso Tomatoes


First, brown the ground beef in a large skillet and drain the grease. Then combine all ingredients into a large slow cooker, stir them to get an even mixture, and cook on low for about 3-4 hours depending upon your slow cooker. Check them regularly to make sure they are not burning. Also, do not drain the juice from either the kidney beans or the banana peppers as this will add moisture and flavor to your chili.

After the chili beans are cooked, you can add shredded cheese and/or crackers to your bowl of chili beans for added flavor. Be sure to savor the flavor of your Tuttorosso Peeled Pear Shaped Tomatoes and thank these fine folks for supplying a tasty part of the ingredients for this recipe!

  1. I love chili, never tried it with peeled pear tuttorosso tomatoes though. Looks great!

  2. I have been craving chili and this just looks awesome! You can never go wrong with banana peppers! I can’t wait to try it!

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      I agree! You can’t go wrong with banana peppers! In chili, on pizza, straight out of the jar. Yum! We sometimes use fresh peppers from the garden {different varieties} when they are in season, too. We like to experiment. 🙂


  3. I LOVE chili but haven’t made it in quite some time. I might have to try your recipe!

  4. I love chili this time of the year. It makes winter so much more bearable. We used crushed tomatoes in our chili, but I am going to have to try it this way.

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      We always used crushed tomatoes, too. I have to say, I prefer this way though. I think the tomatoes taste so much better.

  38. Robin Wilson says

    I love chili and I love slow cooker recipes. Chili is one “cold weather” meal that I love to eat year round. It is especially good the next day I think. Making it in the slow cooker will keep the kitchen from getting so hot this summer! Thanks for what looks like a delicious recipe. I will try it very soon!

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      Yay! I hope you love it. And yes, part of the reason that I love cooking in the slow cooker is that it doesn’t heat up the kitchen as much. I also love how you can leave it simmering longer, without fear of ruining your dish. It’s cooking for people who just don’t want that much of a fuss. 🙂

  39. natalie parvis says

    I l ove making everything possible in the slow cooker. It makes the meat so tender and the flavor much richer!
