Thanks to Del Monte, I was sent a package with canned fruits and vegetables, so I could  “Add Some Garden” into my meals, and share ways I did this via recipe ideas.

If you are not familiar with Del Monte, their canned fruits, vegetables, and tomatoes contain the same essential nutrients as fresh varieties and are grown in the best growing regions of the United States. In addition, the majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day, to ensure that nutrients and flavor are locked in.

I decided to use the Whole Kernel Corn, Diced Tomatoes, and Sliced Peaches and turn them into part of a meal and dessert!

First, I made a Corn Salsa with the Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn and Diced Tomatoes.

 Corn Salsa Recipe:

1 Can of Del Monte Diced Tomatoes
1 Can of Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn
1/2 Cup of Chopped Cilantro
1/2 Cup of Chopped Red Onion
1 Tbsp of Hot Sauce


Simply combine all of these ingredients and refrigerate. Serve as a topping on fajitas, taco salad, cooked poultry or fish, or use as a dip with tortilla chips.

I then made a Peach Cobbler with the Del Monte Sliced Peaches.

Peach Cobbler Recipe, credit

1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
2 cups canned or fresh fruits, with juice


Preheat oven to 400°F.Pour melted butter into a 9-inch square baking dish.In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and a pinch of salt. Stir in milk and almond extract, if using; mix only until combined.Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish.Ladle fruit with juice over the top of the batter.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes, or until batter rises to the top.

Serve as is, while still warm, or top with vanilla ice cream.

This turned out great and my son asked for seconds! I highly recommend using the almond extract in the recipe.
