Taco Meatloaf

      I'm always looking for a new way to do meatloaf. Face it, it's just burger, so any new flavor twist that you can give it is a good thing. With some bell peppers, onions, garlic and the help of a taco seasoning packet an ordinary meatloaf just got a make over. 
    If you can find the Jalapeno ketchup (made by Heinz) this adds a nice little extra and just because I had it, bacon tops the dish off. The flavors were good, texture was firm yet moist and the seasonings added a nice easy touch.

Taco Meatloaf
Meatloaf ready for oven.
2 lb. ground beef
8-10 thin sliced red and yellow bell peppers, diced fine
1/8 cup (Jalapeno) ketchup
1/4 medium onion, diced fine
1 garlic cloves, diced
2 bread heels, crumbled

2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1/8 cup milk (2 large splashes)
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
salt and pepper
1 egg, beaten
3 slices bacon for top of loaf

Preheat oven to 350. Spray coat a 13x9x2 inch baking dish.

Mix all ingredients (except bacon) in a large bowl until well combined.

Pour into baking pan and shape into a loaf. Lay 3 strips of bacon to top lengthwise. Bake 45 minutes and drain any excess grease if needed. Return to oven and cook 30 minutes or until done.

Let rest 10-15 minutes before cutting in slices. Serves 6.
