This is a great combination of Mexican flavors with light ingredients. This is a great make-ahead meal. The meatloaf can be assembled the night before and topped with half of the enchilada sauce, then covered and refrigerated overnight. Throw it in the oven the next day for a quick and easy meal.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, ground chicken, black beans, corn, green chiles, salsa, taco seasoning, bread crumbs, and egg whites until thoroughly combined.
  3. Form the mixture into a loaf shape and place into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Pour half the enchilada sauce over the meatloaf.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and pour the remaining sauce over the loaf. Return to oven and cook until the meatloaf is no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, another 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat loaf should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  7. Slice and serve with pan sauce spooned over the slices.

This was sooooo good, I did make alot of additions to this recipe though. I used the entire egg, also cut the recipe in 1/2 bc I only had1 lb of turkey. added cheese, put in 1/2 of the green ench sauce in the mix and topped the rest before putting in oven. small onion, garlic, rotel tomato sauce, cilantro, fresh thyme and oregano, canned mushrooms, and I used the homemade taco seasoning from this website as well. Really good, I cooked for about 1 hour at 350 and I had left overs from a family of 4. It was a huge loaf bc of all of the additions and it was sooo moist. I am def making this again! Thanks!

Wonderful recipe!!! I did not change the recipe but I used better ingredients. I used Cuban style black beans from Trader Joe's. I used frozen fire roasted corn also from TJs. I used fresh Pico de Gallo from Fresh and Easy for the salsa and panko breadcrumbs.Used the whole can of green chiles-why waste them? Made two meatloaves and it would be easy to freeze one. Will make this again and again. Thanks!
