Just a little Meatloaf ~ jalapeno meatloaf

I was using up the last of a package of ground beef and decided a little meatloaf sounded good.  I just had about 12 o.z. of beef left so adjust this to your liking if you want to make more, but the jalapeno was a great touch and we really enjoyed our lunch with a augratin potato too.

Jalapeno Meatloaf

  • 12 o.z. ground chuck
  • 1 clove garlic – minced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 cup diced fresh jalapeno
  • 1/8 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup tomato juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coarse bread crumbs

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl.  Form into a loaf and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.  I like to top mine with ketchup or bbq sauce and bake a few minutes longer.

I actually sprinkled a little brown sugar on top of the ketchup for this one.  It makes a great compromise at our house as I prefer the bbq and Charles prefers ketchup.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
