Once I realized that you could kick up a traditional meatloaf with tons of flavor and spice, I was totally down with the classic dish!
I love this Mexican Meatloaf for so many reasons. First, I love Mexican food, so adding Mexican flavors to any dish makes it a win in my book! It’s also loaded with veggies!
For the parents out there, you’re going to love how many veggies are hidden in this meatloaf. Most meatloaf recipes contain two pounds of ground meat. This recipe contains one pound of ground beef and one pound of veggies. Ground turkey can also be used in place of the ground beef for a lower calorie option.
This meatloaf is delicious leftover and you can even turn it into a scrumptious Meatloaf Hash for breakfast! It’s also easy to make gluten free and vegetarian. Check out the recipe notes below to learn how!
Now I know what you’re thinking, grilled jalapenos… in a cocktail? But yes, so much yes! Grilling the jalapenos, then boiling them in sugar water to make a Jalapeno Simple Syrup adds smokey, spicy and sweet flavors to any cocktail. When it’s paired with summer’s most refreshing fruit, watermelon, the combination of flavors is amazing!
Sriracha pizza sauce, jalapeños, summer sausage and jalapeño cheddar cheese top this delicious mini pizza recipe. They’re perfect for game days and parties!
Growing up, my favorite month of the year was December. It just so happens to be my birthday month, there’s Christmas and Hickory Farms sets up their stand in the mall. This means Beef Summer Sausage, Cheese Balls and Crackers are a totally acceptable meal for lunch, basically every day in my house!
Today I’m so excited to share my first recipe in partnership with Hickory Farms, a brand I’ve grown up with and loved my entire life!
