Green Chili Meatloaf

This flavorful meatloaf is made with ground beef and chopped mild green chile peppers, along with other southwest-style ingredients. Pepper Jack cheese tops off this tasty meatloaf. The cheese doesn’t agree with hubby’s tummy so I leave it off “sometimes~”

Cook Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes


•1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

•1/2 pound ground pork

•1/2 cup soft bread crumbs

•1/4 cup finely chopped onion

•1 large egg

•3/4 teaspoon salt

•1/4 teaspoon pepper

•1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

•2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

•1 can (14.5 ounces) chili-seasoned diced tomatoes, divided

•2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped mild green chile, drained

•3 to 4 slices pepper jack cheese


350°. Lightly oil a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl combine the beef, pork, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper, chili powder, chopped cilantro, and about half of the tomatoes; reserve the remaining tomatoes for later.

Shape into a loaf and place on the prepared baking pan. Bake the meatloaf for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Top with the sliced cheese and continue baking just until cheese is melted, about 2 to 4 minutes.

Heat the remaining tomatoes and serve sliced meatloaf with a spoonful or two of the tomatoes
