Mexican Meatloaf

I’m not quite sure why it took me so long…but I finally mixed and matched meatloaf.  I mean…I should have done that years ago, right?!?!  Not only is meatloaf Andrew’s favorite supper (and one of my kids’ too!), but it’s super simple to whip up on busy weeknights which makes it the perfect mix and match meal.  Sigh.  Shame on me ;).
If your family loves meatloaf, they will love my Mexican spin on things.  Enjoy!
This recipe makes four large portions or you can easily double it and use a 9×13 baking pan for 8 servings.
Shopping List
1 pound ground beef
1 cup Saltine cracker crumbs (that’s about 12 crackers)
2 eggs, beaten
about 8 green onions, chopped (reserve a few for garnish)
1 (4.5 oz) can of chopped green chiles
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups of your favorite salsa, divided
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease (I used Pam) an 8×8 baking dish.  Set aside.

Combine ground beef, cracker crumbs, eggs,  chopped green onions, green chiles, chili powder, beans and one cup of salsa in a large mixing bowl.  Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and bake 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine remaining cup of salsa and can of tomato sauce in a bowl.  Once 30 minutes is up, top meatloaf with sauce and return to oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and garnish with a few chopped green onions.

A yummy spin on a classic supper.

    I absolutely love meatloaf. It would be my last meal if I had to choose one. Lol. I love the Mexican take on it. Will have to try it asap!

    Looks delicious! What'd you serve with this? I normally do mashed sweet potatoes with a meatloaf, but that doesn't sound good paired with a Mexican one…
