I love meatloaf, and was looking for a new way to make it... I experimented until I came up with this one, and boy, was I glad I did... It was WONDERFUL... Thought I would share it with all of you, it was so good!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 jalapeno peppers, pureed in the blender, then drained, reserving 2 tablespoons of juice, for sauce (If you don't like it hot, use only 2 jalapenos, and reserve 1 tablespoons for sauce, or use 1 4 oz.)
  • 12 cup oats, uncooked
  • 4 tablespoons egg substitute or 1 egg, whipped
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped, reserving 2 T. for sauce
  • 12 teaspoon chili powder

  5. Top with the 6 T. Mexican cheese down the middle of the loaf.
