Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix the beef, pork, water, eggs, picante sauce, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, and bell pepper together in a mixing bowl until evenly blended. Pack into the prepared loaf pan, then poke holes into the loaf with a fork nearly to the bottom of the pan. Pour the undiluted cheese sauce over the top of the roast and spread evenly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (72 degrees C).

This meatloaf was the best! Not dry, mildly seasoned. Adding the salsa to the meat/pork mixture was genius. And it went together in 5 minutes. Perfect!

I made this meatloaf for Wednesday night dinner at church. I received a lot of compliments on the meatloaf, but I wasn't that impressed with it. It was a little on the bland side to me. It needed more salt and more pep. It was not dry and that is a plus.

I HAVE TO ADMIT, WHEN I SAY THE WATER ADDITION, I WAS SKEPTICAL, BUT I GUESS I AM ALWAYS ON THE HUNT FOR A NEW TWIST ON THE MAN FAVORITE MEATLOAF. WELL, THIS IS IT! ABSOLUTELY SUPER DELICIOUS! MOIST, TENDER, & FLAVORFULL WITHOUT BEING OVERLY MEXICAN FLAVORED. I AS USUAL, DID NOT CHANGE A THING ON THE FIRST TRY. AND TO BE HONEST, I WILL NOT CHANGE A THING IN THE FUTURE....PERFECT COMBINATION. I DID USE A WOODEN SPATULA TO LIFT THE MEATLOAF OUT SINCE THERE WAS QUITE A BIT OF GREASE [I USUALLY MICROWAVE MY MEATLOAF, DRAIN THE GREASE, SLICE, & RETURN TO MICROWAVE WITH GRAVY ADDED] BUT ONCE YOU LIFT THE LOAF UP, THE GREASE IS LEFT BEHIND. WILL PROBABLY BECOME OUR NEW FAVORITE MEATLOAF! THANKS SAMSNANA!

I didn't really like this. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it, just wasn't for me. It seemed mushy like.

Both my husband and I LOVED IT!!! Based on some other reviews we did add some seasonings such as black pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, and cayenne to the meat mixture to give it a little extra flavor. We also substituted navy beans for the bread crumbs in order to make it a little more diet friendly. I, too, was hesitant about the amount of water but it made for a very moist and delicious meatloaf. There's no way we could have fit it into a meatloaf pan so we free-formed it on an aluminum lined baking sheet but we probably could have divided it into two meatloaf pans and they still would have been good-sized. I've never made another meatloaf other than my mom's because I love hers so much, but this will definitely be going into our regular rotation. Thanks for sharing!

I made this as written except that I used two pounds ground beef and no pork and I mixed the nacho cheese soup in with the meatloaf. It had a lot of flavor and the 3/4 cup warm water definitely helps, as odd as it sounds.

WAY too much water in this, it was like eating meatloaf soup.
