I'm adopting this recipe from the JAP site. I'll be fine-tuning it today for dinner tonight (2/22/11).
Seasoned with cornmeal, chipotle, and olives, this is a spicy, southwestern rendition of meatloaf.

How to Make Mexican Meatloaf by Susan

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a loaf pan and an 8 x 12-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine all ingredients well in a large bowl (hands work best for mixing). Do not over-mix or pack down, but do mix well.
  3. Gently pack mixture into the greased loaf pan. Invert the loaf pan into the baking dish, shaking out meatloaf. Remove loaf pan. Pat meatloaf into shape if necessary.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or just until cooked through. (Internal temp 160°) Brush with glaze a few times during baking, or wait until the last 15 minutes and top with the glaze, then finish baking. Allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  5. GLAZE: Combine the 1/2 cup pico de gallo well with the hot pepper jelly. A wire whisk works best.
