photo by CabinKat
- Ready In:
- 1hr 40mins
- 1⁄2 sweet onion, diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, diced (stem removed)
- 1⁄2 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 garlic clove, diced
- 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 pinch cayenne (optional)
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 0.5 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed
- 1⁄2 cup corn kernel, from 1 ear of corn, cooked
- 6 ounces ground chorizo sausage
- 1 lb ground chicken
- vegetable oil
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- salsa (optional)
- Pre-heat oven to 350° degrees F.
- NOTE: I like to grill the corn for a bit of a charred taste, but you can cook it however you desire. Or you can use corn from the can.
- Heat medium pot, add about 1 tablespoons oil. Once oil is heated add onions, jalapeno, & green pepper. Cook until semi-soft, about 5-8 minutes. Add garlic and cook about another minute. Remove from pan and set aside.
- In same pan cook chorizo as directed on package, usually about 10-12 minutes, add tomato paste. Remove from heat and drain if needed. Let cool so it can be added with ground chicken without cooking it in bowl.
- In large bowl combine bread crumbs & spices, mix well. Add ground chicken & eggs, mix well. Add cooled vegies, including corn and beans. Add chorizo and mix well. Form into meatloaf.
- Place in lightly greased loaf pan and bake covered with foil for 1 hour.
- You can check internal temperature for 160° since you are using chicken, let rest for 5-10 minutes for temperature to reach 165° and then serve.
- NOTE: You can serve this with salsa for an extra kick in flavor.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
My Mom didn't like more than one cook (herself) in the kitchen at any given time, so I taught myself to cook after I lived on my own. I never liked the same old stuff so I had started to experiment with recipes. I found loads of recipes to play with throughout the years, even before the internet (grin). 15 years ago I met a man who loves to cook as much as me. We have been having loads of fun with the recipes that we find. We only post what we find a delight to make and eat.
