Why I Love This Recipe
Delicious twist on a regular meatloaf. Bursting with flavor.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 pounds ground beef
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Dash hot pepper sauce or Tabasco (optional)
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1/2 cup chopped green onion or regular onion
1/2 cup chopped red or green sweet peppers
1 cup frozen corn
2 (10 ounce) cans Rotel tomatoes with green chilis (well drained)
2 cups crushed tortilla chips or corn chips, divided.
Topping for Mexican meatloaf:
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
Mix together in a large mixing bowl the ground beef with the minced garlic, cilantro, pepper, salt, hot sauce and taco seasoning. Fold in the onions, peppers, corn, drained tomatoes, egg and 1 1/2 cups of the crushed tortilla chips. Form into a loaf and place in baking dish (I used a 9 x 13). Bake in preheated 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove and add the salsa, crushed tortilla chips and cheese to the top of the meatloaf. Raise the oven heat to 375 and bake for 35 more minutes uncovered.
