Recipe & Giveaway: Red Gold Caribbean Chicken Burger & Gift Pack Giveaway

The other day I came home to a six pack sitting on my counter! A six pack of ice cold beer? Heck no - a six pack of Red Gold Tomatoes! Way more exciting to me of course. :-) 

(Keep reading and find out how YOU can get this same gift on your kitchen counter!)

In addition to the tomatoes they sent me a bottle of Mama Selita's Jalapeno Ketchup. Why the combo? Red Gold is having a Summer Grilling Party Sweepstakes that is open for one more week! (Ends Aug 30) With that they sent me tomatoes, ketchup, a couple of aprons and recipes for using Red Gold Tomatoes while grilling burgers! I was curious to find out how to use canned tomatoes on the grill!

Here's my selfie with my new Red Gold Tomato apron - pretty sexy of course! 

There were 5 burger recipe cards with the pack - I chose the Caribbean Chicken Burger to try first.

It's pretty simple - mix ground chicken, Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes w/Lime Juice & Cilantro, 1 egg (I left this out), breadcrumbs & salt/pepper. My husband is allergic to eggs but typically eggs are used as a binder - so as a swap - I just didn't drain the tomatoes as much. This mixed up easily enough and was pretty gloppy.

They formed patties pretty easily though - I just sort of glopped them together on my grill pan. We don't have a great grill - it's a cheap-o charcoal - sure would be nice to win that Green Egg Grill in the sweeps - right?!

They held together really well on the grill - so I topped them with some swiss and was ready to go!

I wish I'd had more toppings - this would be great with avocado and maybe some grilled pineapple slices! The burgers were really juicy with the extra tomatoes inside the burger. These burgers are better fresh - extras get a little dry since the chicken is fairly lean.

There you have it - the way to use canned tomatoes on the grill! Thanks Red Gold for introducing new burger ideas to me. Below the recipe you'll find a giveaway of 2 Red Gold gift packs like the one I got. And don't forget to enter the sweepstakes - it ends August 30!
