This dish is hearty, full of flavor and perfect for family meals! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Redpack Tomatoes. All opinions are 100% mine.
The cold weather has finally arrived in our neck of the woods. After an unusually warm December, I’m actually embracing the cooler temperatures and enjoying relaxing evenings at home. Winter has it’s own set of things that I enjoy, including binge watching my favorite TV shows and hot comfort foods.
Today I wanted to share one of those delicious meals that I enjoy making during the colder months. This dish is hearty, full of flavor and perfect for family meals. For this recipe I used Redpack Tomatoes which are 100% natural, non-GMO verified, and packed in non-BPA lined cans.
I could immediately see the difference in quality from its fresh appearance and vibrant color. Redpack is also family owned and family farmed, so I don’t have to worry about what I’m feeding my family. And nothing beats a delicious hot meal at the dinner table with loved ones.

Ah! I have a box of cornbread mix left! And, sadly, don't want to just make it up normal to serve with chili. This would be way better! Okay, better for the Mister. He doesn't like "plain" things like that. I, however, love cornbread and would just eat it like cake xD Will have to give this a go! :D
