Easy Mexican Style Meatloaf - Low Carb
This evening I made my Mexican Style Meatloaf for dinner. I actually did a little bit of prep last night by sauteing half of a diced red bell pepper, a diced Poblano pepper, and a diced small Vidalia onion in a bit of olive oil until softened and the onion translucent. I put them in a small bowl and popped them in the fridge overnight so I could just mix them into my beef along with the spices when I got home from work this evening. I used my meatloaf recipe found here: Mexican Style Meatloaf and just added the diced cooked peppers and onions to give it an additional boost of flavor. You can choose to add or omit to suit your own taste. I simply mixed everything together which took about 5 minutes and then popped it into my preheated oven for a little over an hour. Note that in place of the typical egg and breadcrumbs added to traditional style meatloaf as a binder, instead I used shredded cheese as my binder. It works amazingly well and adds flavor as well. You will never miss those fillers, I promise. I snapped a few photos of tonight's meatloaf below.
