When I made this meatloaf for the first time, my husband had informed me, that it was the best meatloaf I ever made. I have to admit this is a pretty good meatloaf. Also, be sure to us Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix, with (25% Less Sodium).

How to Make Southwestern Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly grease the inside (bottom only) of one 8x8-inch Teflon coated baking pan. Set pan aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 375º F.
  3. In a bowl mix together thoroughly, the ground beef, water, egg, taco seasoning, bread crumbs or flaxseed, and the cayenne pepper.
  4. Add the meat mixture to the baking pan, and shape into a loaf (7-inches in length -by- 3-1/4 inches in width).
  5. Top meat meatloaf with ketchup, and bake in oven for 1 hour.
  6. After removing the pan from oven, let the meatloaf sit for 5 minutes, before slicing and serving.
  7. Note: When it comes to adding either the bread crumbs or flaxseed, be sure to just add the 1 tablespoon. Surprisingly, that's all the recipe needs to hold this meatloaf together.
