Meatloaf Made Easier
March 1, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Meatloaf again? This might be something that you hear your family say often if you're fond of the traditional meatloaf. But, there are dozens of ways to switch up your regular recipe. For instance, you can use barbeque sauce and French fried onions for a Texas treat. You could use spaghetti sauce instead of regular tomato sauce for an Italian feast. Or in this case you can spice things up with the addition of tangy salsa. Here's the recipe:


Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil

2 pounds lean ground beef

2 cups chunky salsa, divided

1 cup crushed tortilla chips

1 cup chopped onion

1 egg

1 teaspoon each chili powder and garlic salt


PREHEAT oven to 425°F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil.

MIX ground beef, 1 cup salsa, tortilla chips, onion, egg and spices together in a large bowl until well blended.

SPOON mixture in center of foil-lined pan; shape into a 12x6-inch loaf.


BAKE 50 to 55 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Top with remaining salsa; serve immediately.

REYNOLDS KITCHENS TIP: Leftover meatloaf makes great tacos or sandwiches the next day.

Moms, what's your favorite way to switch up your meatloaf recipe?

    It looks like a good recipe, and open for switching around. I like the idea of the FF onion rings, for example. Thank you.
