Thrive Life Food Hacks: Rotel Substitute

Thrive Life has some pretty fun freeze-dried foods. One of my favorites is the freeze-dried green chili peppers. Today I’ll show you a quick an easy Rotel Substitute for our Thrive Life Food Hack:


Are you ready? Just grab a can of diced tomatoes (I prefer petite cut), and add 1-2 tablespoons of Thrive Life freeze-dried green chilies, depending on how much spice you like.

Please note that most cans of diced tomatoes are a few ounces more than the cans of Rotel, so you might have to adjust the liquid in your recipe a bit. But the extra liquid helps to refresh your green chilies, and most recipes will come out the same with this substitute in place. It worked like a charm in my Spicy Sausage 1-pot Pasta.

Best of all, when you’re done, you can put the rest of your green chilies back in your pantry, because they’re shelf-stable for up to a year once they’re opened! It’s pretty much the best.
