Growing up, I was never much of a fan of meatloaf. As an adult I like regular old meatloaf more, but I really like this Mexican version. The gooey cheese and sour cream inside sold me right off the bat! If you're looking for a new take on meatloaf, try this recipe!
1 can (8 ounce size) tomato sauce
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 package taco seasoning mix
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 large egg
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 pound Cheddar cheese, sliced
In a large bowl combine ground beef, tomato sauce, dry bread crumbs, taco seasoning mix, green bell pepper, onion and egg; mix thoroughly and set aside.
In a medium bowl combine cheddar cheese and sour cream. Place half the meat mixture in loaf pan. Make a deep well the length of loaf; place the cheese mixture in the well, then place the remaining meat mixture on top. Bake for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours.
Pour off the drippings. Top the meatloaf with sliced cheddar cheese, overlapping. Let stand for 8 to 10 minutes.
