Mexican Meatloaf

Recently I had some Herdez Guacamole Salsa at my mom's as a dip with potato chips....and I was hooked. I just couldn't stopped eating it. So when I saw a Herdez Instagram picture/recipe for a Mexican Meatloaf I knew I had to make it.

But once I read the recipe, it left me wanting to add a few flavors. So I made some amendments by adding veggies and roasted poblano peppers, since I have so many growing in my garden. It was a hit! The flavors work so well together.

The directions call for a 9" x 13" Baking Dish. But I personally like to use mini loaf pans, and I double the recipe, cause I have 3 teenage boys at home on summer vacation, a hungry boyfriend and I work from home, and always looking for yummy left overs for lunch.

INGREDIENTS (serves 8)

2 carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1/2 onion, chopped
2 poblano peppers, roasted and diced
1 1/2 lbs grounded turkey
1/4 cup cooked white rice
1/2 cup Mexican style cheese blend, shredded
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
olive oil
Refried beans, for serving
Queso fresco, for serving


Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add carrots, celery and onion. Cook until veggies are tender. Set aside.

Combine grounded turkey and rice in large bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups Herdez guacamole salsa, jalapenos, cheese, egg, poblano pepper, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Form mixture into loaf and place in lightly greased 9" x 13" Baking Dish; cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for additional 15-20 minutes or until loaf is cooked through.

Pour remaining Herdez guacamole salsa on top before serving. Serve with refried beans and queso fresco.
