"Mexican flavor inspired meatloaf. Chicken makes this lower in fat than regular meatloaf, and adding pork keeps the meatloaf from tasting dry." — HockeyMom

This meatloaf is fabulous! I made this for dinner the other night and I was not disappointed in the results. I used herb-seasoned stuffing cubes, because it is what I had on hand. I used a pound of ground pork along with the ground chicken, so I used a 16 oz jar of salsa. I also added 2 T. of taco seasoning mix. I used Chubby's BBQ Sauce so I did not add any brown sugar because the sauce is sweet enough. Will definitely make again.
Amazing....family inhaled this dinner...used whole wheat bread crumbs instead of croutons, a green pepper instead of jalepeno, a full 2 lbs of extra lean ground chicken (used no pork), a whole packet of taco seasoning and a Mexican cheese blend in addition to all of the other ingredients. Very moist and extremely tasty. Loved it!
Great flavor, and easy to make.
So good! Thanks for sharing!
Loved this! I used all chicken to make it leaner and it was delicious without being dry.
This meatloaf had the most flavor of any meatloaf I have ever had. It was fairly easy to make, and my wife, a picky eater, really liked it!
This is the most incredible meatloaf I've ever eaten. So moist and full of flavor, and the recipe allows so many opportunities to tailor it for your own preferences. I subbed in half a green bell pepper and the rest of the four-blend Mexican cheese I had instead of jalapeno and pepperjack. Because of this, the resulting loaf was a little sweeter, but still incredibly yummy. Next time I'll try to spice it up by using hot salsa instead of the mild I had on hand. Looking forward to playing with this recipe!
Absolutely delicious!!! I used all chicken and even forgot to add the cheese the second time I made it and didn't miss it! Make sure you like the salsa you choose because the varieties are so abundant and that can drastically change the flavor. I used Pace Picante Sauce.
