Ah meatloaf, it’s one those meals people love to complain about. But the thing is, I love it. My Nana made an awesome meatloaf and we always had the best meatloaf sandwiches the next day.
So, in an effort to spice things up, I decided to try this version of Spanish meatloaf, especially since my family loves spicy foods.
1 lb. ground beef (or pork)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 small bell pepper
1 small onion
2 slices Swiss cheese
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup canned corn
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
1. Chop the onion and pepper.
2. Heat olive oil in skillet.
3. Sprinkle the onion and pepper with Adobo and cook in the skillet for 3-5 minutes or until soft, remove to a plate.
4. In a bowl, combine the meat, onions, pepper, taco seasoning, and drained corn.
5. Spread half of the meat mixture in a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray.
6. Place a few slices of Swiss cheese on top of the meat, then layer the rest of the meat mixture on top.
7. Pour the salsa on top of the meatloaf.
8. Bake the meatloaf at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.
9. Top with the shredded cheese.
10. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the meatloaf is cooked through.
My hubby and kids loved this meatloaf. In fact, there was only one piece left over, and that was gone by the next morning! I will definitely be making more of this. Do you have a favorite meatloaf recipe? Feel free to share in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!
