Salsa Verde Mexican Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Jennifer Reeve

A yummy alternative to traditional meatloaf. I serve this with refried beans and Mexican rice. It's like having a burrito but less messy. You can top with sour cream or guacamole if desired.

I used 1 lb ground moose meat, 1 cup homemade tomatillo salsa, 1 cup sliced black olives and 1 cup breadcrumbs. I didn't have an egg so I substitued with 2 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp water. My substitute book advised asiago for the mexican cheese. I skipped the spices as I had doctored up my salsa with green chilies and spice already. After cooking the meatloaf I iced it with more tomatillo salsa. Very good

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine Ground Beef with eggs and a good amount of the Salsa. Start at about ½ a cup and add more as desired. Add green chiles & olives. Add about a teaspoon each of spices or more if desired. Add enough bread crumbs until meat mixture sticks together. Crumble in cheese as desired.
  3. Grease pan as desired, form loaf in pan. Bake at 350 for 45 mins, and then check for doneness. Depending on your oven and how you shape the loaf this could take another 15-20 minutes.
