"Ro-Tel tomatoes with habaneros"
That sounds like a really handy ingredient for a number of things I can imagine. I wonder whether it's sold up here...must investigate.

Not that I am aware of - at least not in Winnipeg. I have a great recipe for refried bean soup that calls for it, so I substitute a can of regular tomatoes, with chili seasoning if available, and then add part of a small can of chopped green chilis. Seems to work for my purposes. For this recipe you would use some of all of a small can of chopped habaneros - I am a bit wimpy about spicy so use the milder green chilis.

Oddly enough, I don't think the habanero Ro-Tels are actually any hotter than the regular ones. I seldom buy Ro-Tel -- my local grocery store's house brand of diced tomatoes with green chilis are a better deal, a 15 oz. can for about $.70 instead of a 10 oz. can for $1. But I happened to have the Ro-Tels because they'd been on sale a few weeks ago, and this seemed like the moment to use them.
