We use Del Monte Diced Tomatoes is so many recipes. I use it an easy spaghetti recipe that I have adapted from something my Mom used to make. I also use Del Monte Diced Tomatoes in soups, and other main and side dishes.
Description of Del Monte Diced Tomatoes
The most recent can of tomatoes that I purchased is in a 14.5 oz can with a regular top that requires a can opener to open. I would have preferred a pop top but it’s not a deal breaker for me to buy a can without it. If I was given a choice between this and another brand with a pop top though, I would buy the one with the pop top if the price were the same. When you open the can you will find good size diced tomatoes in tomato juice. The tomatoes are firm enough that they do not turn totally to mush in cooking.
Taste and Experience with Del Monte Diced Tomatoes
Frankly, in my opinion, diced tomatoes are generally diced tomatoes. I have had a good experience with most of them, even store brands. I do not generally eat these out of the can but have on occasion and they really are tasty, but I can not detect a difference with them or any other brand. Generally when I am purchasing diced tomatoes I will look first at price. If there is a tie, I will look for a pop top. If there is still a tie, I will probably choose a name brand over a store brand but frankly most of the store brand tomatoes are just as good as the name brands, so it’s really only a slight preference.
