  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. Mix the ground beef and ground pork in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the corn, cornbread, sour cream, pepperjack cheese, onion, milk, egg, jalapeno peppers, garlic, kosher salt, and pepper. Gently mix the corn mixture into the meat mixture. Form into a rounded loaf shape, and place in the prepared baking dish
  3. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees F (72 degrees C). Loosely cover with aluminum foil during the last 15 minutes of cook time if the loaf is overly brown.

This was a pretty good twist on boring old meat loaf! The one thing I felt like it was missing was a sauce of some sort...perhaps top/serve w/salsa? I made it close to as written w/a few minor...

Really tasty and moist, definitely high on the calories but so hard not to eat it by the truckload!

I made this as part of a comfort food dinner party for friends and it was all gone even though I doubled the recipe. I used half as much jalepeno as called for but used a whole box of Jiffy Cor...

I usually don't like meatloaf unless it is bathing in ketchup, but this was soooo good! I used extra sharp white cheddar instead of pepperjack (only because I had the cheddar on hand). This meat...

UPDATE: I made this recipe last night and instead of adding french onion soup mix as i usally do i added 2 taco seasoning packets and doritos and ommitted the sour cream. It was my best meatloaf...

This was the BEST meatloaf. Used hot sausage for added kick. Makes great sandwiches too. To help with solidity, make sure to pour off the grease and let it cool a little and "set" before you ...

I am always looking for good ways to make meatloaf. I thought this was very good, a nice change from the regular versions. I used corn muffin mix, instead of crumbs, and all ground beef, instea...
