Celebrating New Traditions with a Family Chili Recipe

Tuttorosso brand tomatoes recently held a promotion encouraging folks to start new traditions and share them on the web!

I know that I am a little late on this post, but I had the chance to go through my draft posts and really like how this one came out so I still want to share it with you.

Plus, I got Brett to share his amazing Chili recipe with me, and now I can share it with you!

I thought that was such a cool promotion that Tuttorosso Tomatoes started and love starting family traditions. Even though I didn’t have the chance to enter into the contest, I still wanted to celebrate and use Tuttorosso Tomatoes in a family recipe that we can continue to make together at home.

Brett is definitely my inspiration for cooking. He is such a natural at it and can take anything we have in the kitchen and make it into something wonderful.

He makes the best chili I have ever had (ever!) and so I asked him to show me how to make it using Tuttorosso Diced tomatoes.



  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 lb Ground Chicken (or beef, or turkey)
  • 1 packet chili seasoning
  • Brett’s Secret Ingredient (Brown sugar to taste!)


It was a really easy recipe to make, and when you let it simmer enough, the ground chicken we use gets so tender that you could totally think it was beef.


After cooking the chicken in the pot, you just add the tomatoes, beans and chili seasoning and stir it all together.



Brett let me take the reigns for a little… kind of. :)


Once everything it mixed together, Brett just sprinkled a handful of his secret ingredient, brown sugar, in and then we let it simmer for as long as we can wait! :) Usually 30-45 minutes is good, but to get it really tender and flavorful an hour is perfect.

Then, enjoy!


It is so yummy on its own, but sometimes if we want to indulge a bit, we’ll top it off with some cheese and let it get all melty. Mmmm!

This recipe is one of my favorites that Brett makes. It is so comforting, filling, and is healthy too. It’s basically fat free if you don’t add the cheese! 😉

I can’t wait till Rylee is older and we have family chili night and teach her to make it, too! How Fun!

Thanks Tuttoroso Tomatoes for helping us create an official family tradition for our household!
