Low Carb Green Chile and Monterey Jack Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

"I made this receipe tonight, for the first time, and my husband and I LOVED it! So, of course, I had to post it here on Zaar! This is a nice twist on meatloaf (in, fact, I don't even like meatloaf, but I loved this)! It is incredibly flavorful, almost addicting (I know my husband could not stop eating it, and actually requested that we make this a weekly affair), and also inexpensive, and fairly easy to make. It is a perfect low carb main dish, and would be great with a variety of side dishes. Please also feel free to experiment with the spices, as these measurements are just estimates (I just used them all, to taste). Enjoy!"

Ready In:




  • Mix the ground beef, eggs, and spices together in large bowl.
  • Roll out the ground beef mixture into a flat square on a large sheet of wax paper.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and one can green chiles (leave additional cheese for topping).
  • Roll the wax paper, with the meatloaf in the middle, until the meatloaf shapes into a loaf shape. Carefully unfold the wax paper, around the meatloaf, and remove.
  • Gently twist the ends of the meatloaf, so that the cheese and chiles do not leak out, while cooking.
  • Place in standard loaf pan.
  • Sprinkle with additional spices, if desired.
  • Top with geen chiles, sour cream, and additional cheese.
  • Bake in 400 oven for 45 mins to one hour.

  1. I did not care for this meatloaf. It was too dense...maybe 1 egg would have been enough? Also, the green chilis and the cheese were not too noticeable. I probably won't make this again.


2007 I thought that I would edit my home page...its been over two years, so I its time to update! I have lived in beautiful New Mexico for the last few years (Albuquerque), after 20 years of living on the West Coast (San Francisco and Seattle). I love many things about New Mexico - the perfect weather, in particular; the sunsets; the open land; and the great Southwest food - but also sometimes miss the energy of bigger cities. I am a mental health therapist, who loves my work! I love to cook (a passion that I discovered after getting married). Rather than cooking a few favorites on a regular basis, I prefer to collect recipes (primarily from the Internet), and try new things often (in fact, my husband jokes that he will try a new dish that he loves and then never see it again :-)). I also love to read, write, travel, work on personal growth, and study/learn. I am a total water baby, who lives in the desert, so I love traveling to tropical locations, where I especially love to snorkle and boggie board! I am very happily married to my best friend, soulmate, partner, and greatest cheerleader and supporter, and we have three grown children, and four grandchildren (so far :-))I am a total foodie (I "live to eat" instead of "eat to live.") :-) I love everything about food...cooking; the delicious scents of a yummy dish, as it cooks; the beautiful presentation of wonderful food; dining out; dining in; the taste of great food; sitting around the table, with friends and family, eating, talking and laughing; nurturing those I love by cooking for them...all of the senusal pleasures that food brings! My favorite Internet site for yummy recipes is this one - and I almost always choose recipes with five-star ratings, so please keep on reviewing! :-)
