Meatloaf With A Southwest Twist

Cyndy Ingle


I enjoy meatloaf about anyway it's prepared. I simply began adding ingredients to a regular meatloaf & it turned out delicious. I tend to slow-bake meat dishes. Try this recipe, you'll enjoy it, too.

How to Make Meatloaf With A Southwest Twist


  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Mix together first five ingredients & spices (I use my hands). Place into a pan/dish a bit larger than meat mixture. Cover with foil. Bake for 1 hr. Mix together the topping ingredients while meat is baking. Remove from oven, remove foil, drain off excess fluids, spoon topping over meat. Turn oven down to 200 degrees & continue baking for 1/2 hr (just to heat topping). Let set for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
