The Old El Paso Chopped Green Chilis are definitely a pantry or “Cantry” staple! I use them when I am cooking ground beef and chicken or when I am eating all vegetarian!

Green Valley Organic Canned Corn is one of my all-time favorite canned corns, available at my local grocery store. I love knowing that fresh fruits and vegetables are harvested at the peak of ripeness and canned within only four hours, sealing in their nutrition and flavor, you know? It's always sweet, fresh, crisp, and perfect for recipes or to enjoy by itself with a bit of melted butter on top, of course!
Next, I am loving Bush’s Beans NEW Organic Black Beans. They are DELICIOUS! I have tried at least 7 different types of black beans over the year, and these ones are my favorite! I simply strained the beans, then rinsed them off. I use canned black beans in 2-3 recipes per week because, to me, beans make a great base for any vegetarian meal. That's why I was so happy to find out how wonderful these were!
Lastly, the Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes really rounded out the flavor of this dish! I love using canned tomatoes in everything from burrito or taco filling to Italian dishes and soups. I often make sure to have 2-3 cans of tomatoes in my pantry at all times as well.
Keeping my "Cantry" stocked really helps cut down on time in the kitchen—allowing more time with friends and family! Not to mention, a well-stocked pantry full of fruits and vegetables can help you serve up the recommended 42 cups of fruit and 53 cups of vegetables a family of four needs every week, providing a diet higher in 17 essential nutrients including potassium, calcium, and fiber.
