Cook Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) chili-seasoned diced tomatoes, divided
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped mild green chile, drained
  • 3 to 4 slices pepper jack cheese

Preparation:

350°. Lightly oil a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl combine the beef, pork, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper, chili powder, chopped cilantro, and about half of the tomatoes; reserve the remaining tomatoes for later.

Shape into a loaf and place on the prepared baking pan. Bake the meatloaf for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Top with the sliced cheese and continue baking just until cheese is melted, about 2 to 4 minutes.

Heat the remaining tomatoes and serve sliced meatloaf with a spoonful or two of the tomatoes.

Serves 6.
