Mexican Meatloaf - Family Style

Hubby and I both enjoyed this dish because this Mexican style meatloaf was a change from the traditional meatloaf. I topped it with salsa and cheese. Yum, yum, yum!  I will definitely make this recipe again!

Mexican Style Meatloaf

33.5 oz 93% lean ground beef (4 - 3/4 Lean)
1/2 cup egg beaters (1/4 Leanest Lean)
1 tsp chili powder (2 Condiments)
1/2 tsp ground cumin (1/2 Condiment)
1 tsp salt (4 Condiments)
2 cloves freshly minced garlic (2 Condiments)
1/2 cup salsa (8 Condiments)
1 cup reduced fat Colby and Monterrey jack cheese, grated (1 Lean)
4 oz diced green chili peppers (1 Green)

Pre-heat oven to 375° F. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, egg beaters and spices together. Cut a large square of waxed paper and roll out the ground beef mixture into a flat square. Sprinkle with half of the cheese and the green chili peppers. Roll the waxed paper, with the meatloaf in the middle, until it shapes into a loaf. Carefully unfold the waxed paper from the meatloaf and remove. Fold the ends of the meatloaf to the cheese and chilies will not spill out during cooking. Place in a loaf pan. Top with salsa. Bake in oven at 375° F for 50 to 55 minutes or until done. Sprinkle other half of cheese on top and bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

6 servings with
