                                       Mexican Style – Turkey Meatloaf 

 

Ingredients:

2 and 1/4 lbs  ground Turkey (4 – 3/4 Lean)

1/2 cup egg beaters (1/4 Lean)

1 tsp chili powder (2 Condiments)

1/2 tsp ground cumin (1 Condiment)

1/2 tsp salt (2 Condiments)

2 cloves freshly minced garlic (2 Condiments)

1/2 cup salsa (8 Condiments)

1 cup reduced fat Colby and Monterrey jack cheese, grated (1 Lean)

4 oz diced green chili peppers (1 Green)

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 375° F. In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey, egg beaters and spices together. Cut a large square of waxed paper and roll out the ground beef mixture into a flat square. Sprinkle with half of the cheese and the green chili peppers. Roll the waxed paper, with the meatloaf in the middle, until it shapes into a loaf. Carefully unfold the waxed paper from the meatloaf and remove. Fold the ends of the meatloaf to the cheese and chilies will not spill out during cooking. Place in a loaf pan. Top with salsa. Bake in oven at 375° F for 50 to 55 minutes or until done. Sprinkle other half of cheese on top and bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

 

The whole family will enjoy this. It also makes for great leftovers.

6 servings with 1 Lean, 2.5 Condiments, and 1/6 Green per serving
