Mexican Meatloaf

We liked the turkey mexi-burgers so much, I decided to try adapting it to a meatloaf.  I was going to do this in the crock pot but ran out of time and popped it in the conventional oven instead.  Hubby declared this one a winner, and at 268 calories and 12.68 grams of fat a slice (there are 5) before adding the guac or salsa, it’s a nice, healthy alternative to the greasy traditional meatloaf.


  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 packet Sazon
  • 3 oz. pepper jack cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the cheese nice and thin.  Set aside.
  3. Mix the first six ingredients in a medium sized bowl.  Go ahead and get your hands dirty.  It’s going to be REALLY wet and gloopy (fair warning).
  4. Spray a small loaf pan (I think mine was like 4×8) with cooking spray.
  5. Spread half the meat mixture on the bottom.
  6. Layer the cheese across the top so that it’ll make a good layer of ooey gooey goodness.
  7. Top with remaining meat mixture.
  8. Set loaf pan on another cookie sheet (to catch any drips) and bake for 45 minutes.
  9. Slice and top with your choice of guacamole, salsa, and/or sour cream.
