Easy MEATLOAF made w/ Salsa!


My favorite way to make Meatloaf! I actually think the recipe comes from a Weight Watchers cookbook, but my aunt taught it to me and I have tweaked it a little. 
Its so easy & even my Picky boys love it! 

I'm going to give you the basic recipe w/ a footnote of the extras I add =)

What you need..

(usually makes around 6 servings but easy to expand)

1 lb. Hamburger meat (I like to use 75/25)
1/2 cup CHI-CHI’S® salsa (I use mild, but go as spicy as you like)
1/2 (or more if you prefer) tube of Saltine crackers - crushed
1/3 (or more if you prefer) cup of Ketchup - plus a little extra for the top
1 egg lightly beaten 
 salt and/or pepper to taste

Make it..

Preheat oven to 350 f
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl
Transfer to a loaf pan (I usually use a 9*9 cake pan because the kids like theirs flat lol)
Drizzle with Ketchup
Bake 45 minutes to an hour, until the Internal temp is at least 160 f 

My add-ins:

I like to chop a small onion and soak a piece of bread in milk (something my granny taught me) and add to the mix.
