Several types of recipes use Cajun Stewed Tomatoes as one of their ingredients. I use the Rotel Brand tomatoes a majority of the time, which adds wonderful flavor to the majority of the Cajun dishes I prepare. But if you have time, this adds a really nice homemade touch and it also makes a wonderful side dish. This would be great for the bumper crop of tomatoes most people have in the summer.


  • 6 - 8 ripe tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 3 tbsp sugar (more or less)
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne (more or less and optional)


Step 1

Core tomatoes; place in boiling water for about 15 to 20 seconds, then into ice water to cool quickly; peel. Cut tomatoes in wedges.

Step 2

In a crock pot, combine all the ingredients. Cover and cook on low 8-9 hours.

Step 3

Remove bay leaf. Sprinkle top with parsley, if desired. Serve as a side dish or freeze in portions for soups or other recipes.

Serves 6. Recipe may be doubled.
