It’s that time of year… the time when everyone seems to have a million things going on at once. The kids are in the swing of things at school and there are soccer practices and piano lessons galore. Plus the holidays are slowly creeping up on us and we’re all busy making arrangements and plans and gearing up for the most wonderful time of the year. All of this leaves little time to get dinner on the table. We know the feeling. That’s why we’re so excited about this week’s giveaway. We’re giving away 12 cans of Allens Vegetables to two lucky winners. Canned veggies are the ultimate in quick-fix meals. There’s no better way to get dinner on the table in a jiffy than with ready-to-serve foods like the vegetables from Allens.
Not sold on the idea of serving canned vegetables to your family? Once you check out these two awesome recipes (made using a variety of Allens Vegetables) you’ll be convinced. These veggies taste just as good as fresh ones, but you can get them for a fraction of the cost! Just try one of the recipes below and see if your family can taste the difference between Allens canned vegetables and fresh veggies. We sure couldn’t!
Arkansas Caviar – You’ve heard of Cowboy Caviar? This is it’s tasty cousin, full of great Southwestern flavor. Made with corn, red and green peppers, black beans, tomatoes and a whole lot more, this crave-worthy “salad” is one of our favorite appetizers to prepare when we’re having guests over. Everyone loves this dish!
Chicken & Mixed Vegetables Pita Pockets – This isn’t your average sandwich. This easy-to-prepare recipe uses canned veggies, canned chunky chicken and shredded cheese and the end result is a pita pocket that’s bursting with great flavor and texture. Make these “sandwiches” for lunch or dinner… they’re great pretty much any time of day!
Don’t these dishes look good? Just pick up some canned veggies next time you’re at the supermarket and you can make both of these meals in no time flat!
