Cheesy Salsa Mini Meatloaves

by Laura

I am nearing the end of sharing all the Kraft Foods/Sam’s Club dinner planner. This recipe is the Cheesy Salsa Mini Meatloaves. These were quite delicious.

I loved the spice that the salsa added and these meatloaves turned out nice and tender. However, I did still eat my meatloaf with ketchup. I don’t think I can ever eat meatloaf without it. It added some sweetness and it complemented to spice of the salsa.

The advantage to making mini meatloaves is the cooking time is much less than a regular meatloaf. The big downside to this recipe is it left a big mess in my muffin tin. Next time I will either shape 12 mini loaves and bake them on a baking sheet or line the muffin tins with those foil liners (you could even use squares of aluminum foil). I didn’t enjoy scrubbing out each of those muffin cups. Give these a try, that had nice flavor and I liked the cheese on top!

I made these tonight and they came out wonderful and cheesy. I used shredded monterrey jack cheese and cheddar in place of the mexican blend and I used my own salsa I had on hand in fridge. Oh, using the foil worked out perfect. Easy clean-up.

cheese on meatloaf! mmm! they look really yummy, I would have to agree on making smaller sized meatloaves without the muffin tin though. I hate the cleanup with those things too.

I like the idea of a smaller meatloaf too, these look rather cute (not a word you often associate with meatload) but I bet the kids like the size too.

OK – I'm not a big meatloaf fan, but those actually look pretty good! 🙂
