Mexican Meatloaf

Mexican Meatloaf

Introduction

I started making this when my son was still at home because he would not eat regular meatloaf. I started making this when my son was still at home because he would not eat regular meatloaf.
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1lb. of ground turkey breast
    1lb. of lean ground beef
    1 pkg. taco seasoning
    1 8oz. can tomato sauce
    1cup oatmeal
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup diced onion
    1/2 cup diced green pepper
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 cup of reduced fat shredded colby jack cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. You will need 2 loaf pans I use the kind that are 2 pieces so that any fat draines into the bottom

Mix all ingredients except the cheese in a big bowl until they are well combined. Divide mixture evenly into the 2 loaf pans.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkly each loaf with 1/2 cup of the cheese. Return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

Cut each loaf into 6 equal pieces.

  • This is very good. I gave one loaf to my grandaughter and her family really liked it also. I used some of the meat mixture to stuff a green pepper. Also I used a can of diced chili peppers instead of the green pepper. I put a slice of cheese on top of the green pepper.

  • We love this meatloaf. It's a nice twist on a classic american mainstay. I only make one loaf and use only the lean beef, everything else in half. This works out best for my family. Leftovers make great sandwiches too! - 5/1/13
