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

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.
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.
I really didn't know what to expect from a meatloaf using ground chicken and pork, but, wow the taste really packs a punch! It had so much flavor and tasted really fresh using fresh jalapeno and cilantro. My ground chicken and pork came in 1 lb. containers. I noticed that other reviewers used an entire lb. of pork, so, I did to so I didn't have and extra 1/2 lb that I probably wouldn't use. I added a full 2 tbs. of taco seasoning and 16 oz. salsa to accomodate for the extra pork. I left everything else the same. So, so yummy! It was moist and cooked perfectly in the time listed on the recipe. I will definitely be making again. Thanks, HockeyMom!
Loved this! I used all chicken to make it leaner and it was delicious without being dry.
So good! Thanks for sharing!
It's great. Living in Cyprus I had to modify some ingredients. I used 1/2 cup chilli cheese and 1/2 cup parmasen. Also half way through, I drained excess moisture as the previous one I mad was too moist. As for flavor it's excellent and something different in eastern mediteranian. ;)
