Yummy Meatloaf

Updated on October 13, 2009

meat loaf,mashed potatoes,gravy and veggies

the simple pleasures


2 lbs. of lean ground beef

1 green pepper {diced}

1 red pepper {diced}

1 cup of onion {diced}

2 cans of green chile {diced}

1 cup of pace picante {hot is my preference}

2 eggs

1 sleeve of Zesta saltine crackers {mashed}

In a large mixing bowl combine all the ingredients.

I just crush the crackers with a rolling pin or by hand in the pkg.

Be careful the bag doesn't pop open and spill all over {did it}

After you have mixed everything together add salt and pepper {1 tsp. of each}

Now place mixture in a casserole dish and form your loaf {I make a wide loaf instead of like a bread loaf. It cooks quicker and tastes better}

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees until done {45 min.-1 hr 15 min.}

When done baking remove from oven and let set for 10 min. before cutting

Now enjoy..

      Just jotted this down and going to try it tonight. We love spicy foods and this sounds like it should perk up a meatloaf wonderfully. Good night for it also. It is nice and cool in Houston right now and we may even have some snow flurries tomorrow. Most unusual as you might know. Thanks for this tasty sounding recipe.
