Taco Meat Loaf

So I haven’t been keeping up with this blog but I make sure to cook at least 75% of the time now. I still don’t like grocery shopping and I don’t think I ever will, but until Whole Foods and Chuck’s start their own delivery service, I am stuck!

I can’t even remember where I found the recipe that inspired me to make this – maybe pinterest. Modified it a bit to suit my own inspiration. Big M loved it, it was a little spicy for Little M, but that was my bad, mistakenly grabbed the “medium” salsa. (woops!) He liked it anyway, it was just a bit too spicy for him to fully enjoy it.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup crushed ritz crackers
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup your favorite salsa

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Salsa, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and additional olives, optional

  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°.
