I have many recipes in my recipe box for meatloaf. There is so many ways to prepare it. I usually prepare my meatloaf by adding lipton onion soup mix which has always been my favorite recipe. This recipe is a new twist to an old favorite. I have to say it is very tasty and is different from the usual recipe. The Gourmet Cupboard sells this mix for only $3.75 and it is quick and easy to prepare. I changed the recipe a bit to my own liking.This recipe calls for picante sauce. I like to use the hot picante but you can use the mild if you don’t like it hot.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 package Gourmet Cupboard Mexican Meatloaf Mix
1 cup picante sauce
1can green chilies
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Mix all ingredients with ground beef. Mix well to combine. Place in loaf pan and bake at 350 for one hour. Top with cheese 10 to 15 minutes before removing from oven or until cheese is melted.
