Diced tomatoes with citantro and lime

Thanks to some frantic shopping on my part, and some lousy stocking on the part of a local grocery store, I ended up with 3 big cans of Furmano's diced tomatoes with cilantro and lime. Various Furmano's products were on sale 5 for 5 bucks, so I started grabbing without paying attention.

Anyway, I'm now soliciting ideas for what to do with these tomatoes.

  1. Hrm, this isnt' very original, but you could try some sort of mexican inflected tomato soup with chicken broth, cumin and diced avocados/tortilla strips. I've never seen cans of tomato like this.

    1. Add some hot peppers (CHILES in the chilihead vernacular) and call the mixture 'SALSA.'

      Furmano products come from central PA. You from there?

      1. Yup - I'm from Reading area. Given that you love the Dilworthtown Inn (was there about 8-10 years ago), I'm betting you've heard of my favs (check my profile)?

        Anyway - I'm with you on refering to them as Chiles. I was thinking about making some kind of salsa or sauce. Lately I've been into salsa without tomatoes though (just a variety of chiles, plus onions & garlic).

        1. If you leave out the chilis and add chopped garlic, onions, and olives, you can call it bruschetta. Maybe add some pepper flakes.

            Bruschetta involves spreading that mixture on toasted Italian bread...then it's bruschetta. Red pepper flakes are usually from dried chiles, most frequently 'chile de arbol' variety.
