"I make salsa from my garden, then can for later, and use to make this awesome meatloaf. I use garlic, fresh tomatoes, peppers and onions all from my garden. You can use commercially-made salsa, too."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Lightly mix the ground chuck, onion, brown sugar, egg, salsa, and bread crumbs in a bowl, and spoon into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, until the meatloaf is cooked all the way through and the top is browned. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I too don't like sweet spicy combo. I left out the brown sugar and instead of bread crumbs I added 1 cup oatmeal. When the meatloaf was just about done, I put about 1/4 cup ketchup on the top and smoothed it out and finished cooking. This was great!


I submitted this recipe and Im so sorry, even after reading the views, I never checked my typo, you all are right, I only put a little less than a cup of dry bread crumbs.

This was super tasty!! I needed a recipe that was quick and included the sparse items I had on hand. Very moist and flavorful; different than any other meatloaf I've ever made. The only thing I added was a sprinkle of crushed saltines and butter in the last 15 minutes (only b/c I have to have a crunch on top). This will definitely be a staple in our household dinners. Thank you!
