This is a great beef meatloaf substitute. It's much lower in fat, high in protein, and is easy to mix up and bake for a quick meal. It's very moist and the salsa gives it great flavor! Our family loves it.

When trying to eat healthier, you can still enjoy comfort food. This turkey meatloaf is proof of that. We loved the salsa in this meatloaf! It adds moisture to the ground turkey which can be dry at times. The mix of the bell peppers also add to the flavor of the meatloaf. Healthy comfort food!
