Mexican Meatloaf with Salsa Noodles

Due to sick kids and a busy weekend, I didn't have time to plan meals like I usually do. So, tonight was a fly by the seat of our pants kind of night for dinner. I fed the kids leftovers, and attempted to find something to do with the 2lbs of hamburger I had in the fridge. The hubby was in the mood for meatloaf, and I was in the mood for something spicy - so I got to creating! The end result was great, nice moist meatloaf with a side of salsa and cream cheese noodles. My husband was very disappointed at first that I wasn't whipping up some mashed potatoes with this meal, but as soon as he tasted the noodles he changed his mind. We'll definitely be making this one again!

Mexican Meatloaf

  • 2lbs ground beef (or turkey)
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning (I make my own)
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1 cup shredded mexican cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa
In a bowl, mix ground beef, corn, and taco seasoning. Add 1/2 of the meat mixture to the bottom of a bread pan. spread refried beans over the meat mixture and sprinkle with 1/2 of the mexican cheese. Place the rest of the meat mixture on top of the beans and cheese, pinching around the edges to seal the meat layers together. Top meatloaf with the rest of the cheese and pour the salsa over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Serve with a side of Salsa-Cream Cheese Noodles.

Salsa-Cream Cheese Noodles

  • 1/2-1 lb cooked egg noodles
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 4-6oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

In a sauce pan, combine salsa and cream cheese over medium heat until cream cheese has melted and blends well with the salsa. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Mix sauce with cooked noodles. Serve.
