Time for a GIVEAWAY!


Giveaway is CLOSED! Click here for the winner! Thanks for participating!


Okay all you foodies out there – do I have a terrific giveaway just for you!

Many of you likely know by now, that I’m working with RO*TEL as a judge on their RO*TEL Across America Recipe Contest, where one original winning recipe will receive a grand prize of a cool $2000, but… maybe you’ve been too busy to make your way over there to visit the site or submit a recipe yourself.
1 - Well, I’m hoping to nudge you just a tad, so I’m giving away a full case – yes, that’s right – a FULL CASE of RO*TEL Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies to one lucky blogger!

2 - And, just for fun, WE'RE GONNA THROW IN THIS NICE, PRETTY SERVING BOWL TOO, for you to make up some salsa or some queso with all that RO*TEL! Isnt' it pretty?


All you have to do to enter, is pop over to the RO*TEL Across America Recipe Contest page and click on the Facebook “Like” button. Then, poke around a bit, browse the site, and have a peek at the recipe entries submitted so far.

Come back here and leave a comment about why you’ll be submitting a recipe, or... why you won’t! That’ll earn you ONE entry for a chance to win this FULL CASE OF RO*TEL and a lovely serving bowl.


Blog about the RO*TEL Across America Recipe Contest {http://www.rotelacrossamerica.com} - feel free to grab the graphic above if you like. Come back and leave me a link to your post and you earned yourself 5 BONUS ENTRIES for this case of RO*TEL and cool serving bowl giveaway. That’s it!

I know we're all busy, so if you prefer, grab a badge for your sidebar here http://www.rotelacrossamerica.com/thank-you.php as a way to let your readers know about the RO*TEL contest instead, and I'll give you the bonus entries anyway! Don't forget to come back and comment to let me know!  All I ask is that you please leave the badge up until the end of the contest on June 13th.

Share

Good luck y'all and thank you all so much in advance for your help in getting the word out about this fantastic RO*TEL contest and the opportunity for someone – possibly someone you know - to win $2,000!

Giveaway closes Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. CST.  Open to U.S. residents only please.

Disclosure: ConAgra Foods has provided me with the products for this giveaway.

  1. Oh I NEED this!!
    I don't know if I have an original recipe that includes RoTel, but I'm going to check! I already became a facebook fan long ago, and I'm adding the badge to my blog now!

  2. Hey Mary =) I became of fan of RoTel on FB...and I'm toying with the idea of entering now that I've poked around a bit. I know time is almost up...I need to get a few cans and try out my idea. I just used my only can from the pantry about a weeka and a half ago! Thanks for the great opportunity!

  3. I'm a FB fan, but I won't be submitting a recipe b/c I don't have any that use RoTel! I love it though, so some recipes sure would be great to have!! :)

    Thanks for this great giveaway!

  4. I am now a fan on FB and twitter, too, for that matter. I am so impressed that you are a judge for this contest...what a neat honor for you! I won't be submitting a recipe as I am about to go out of town for two weeks and cannot think beyond packing for 7 people.

  5. Wow I really need this. I cook with Rotel all the time! I just became a facebook fan and I intend to blog about the contest in the next few days on http://anna-gastronomy101.blogspot.com "A Southern Gal's Quest for the Gourmet Life" I plan on entering the contest now that I know about it! I have an awesome chicken breast stuffed with cheese and rotel and smothered in a blended rotel and cream sauce! May sound weird but it is delicious! I will put that up on my blog too in the next few days.

    Congrats on being a judge for this, what an awesome opportunity to have fun!

  12. Okay, I'm a fan.

    The reason that I haven't submitted a recipe yet (this is like the ol' "dog ate my homework"): SO busy lately. I haven't even been able to catch up on the blogs that I read (yours!). I promise that I'll come up with something before June 13th...the day before my wedding anniversary and 3 days before Krista's Kitchen's first ever catering job. YIKES! Who needs sleep? lol.

    Oh.my.gosh! I just got a recipe inspiration as I typed this. Seriously. OK...send over that Rotel so that I can start practicing. : )

    Hope you have a great LONG weekend!

  13. I have the greatest recipe that I created last night at 3:30 in the morning when I couldn't sleep. Today, the food editor came by and I sent the rest of the dish with her back to work. She emailed to said everyone loved it and couldn't believe Ro*Tel was the star ingredient. I'm sooo excited. I've tweeted, facebooked my personal account and facebooked my cooking contest support group! I can't wait to surprize YOU!

  14. I'm not sure if this will work, but here is my link to my facebook cooking contest support group. It just started last week!

  15. Hello Mary,

    I am new to your site--love your recipes! I saw the contest and am a Ro*tel facebook pan (I liked them already)! Plus I have submitted my Easy Enchilada Casserole recipe too! Check it out, won't you!

    Also, here is my blog that showcases my entry along with the photo of the "Rotel Across America Recipe Contest" to snag me another 5 bonus points!

    Thank you and have a safe and fun Memorial Day holiday Mary!

  16. I so love RoTel!!! Being a native Texan I have ate the stuff since birth.....or pretty much since birth:-) My favorite thing to do is mix Rotel & Velvetta & add chips........can't beat that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've been a fan ever since you first mentioned the recipe contest. I DO plan on entering. A case of Rotel sure would make my recipe testing easier :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love RoTel so much! I am seriously considering a recipe for the contest but not sure which one to enter. I am enjoying your site. Thanks for the chance to win a great product and beautiful bowl.

  19. I just posted on my cooking contest facebook wall about your giveaway! Smiles! And now, I'm heading in to the kitchen to make my soon to be recipe entry a second time...can't wait to eat it again! http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/profile.php?id=100001107746219&v=wall

  20. I just posted the contest on my blog (www.rvher.com) and now I'm leaving a comment on your website and voted on facebook BECAUSE I need this so badly. I am a fulltime RVer and sometimes it is hard to find my beloved Ro-Tel. A care package of Ro-Tel and that sweet bowl would be awesome so that when I want my homemade salsa (made with Ro-Tel, natch) and feeling homesick for Texas I can have my fix!

    Thanks!

  21. I've been a Facebook (and Twitter) fan of Ro-Tel for quite some time. I've got PLENTY of use for those tomatoes (and that cutesy bowl) because I've already entered two recipes into the contest! I posted a link about the contest on my FB page here:
