Have you made a turkey meatloaf before and found it bland and boring? Well, you didn’t try this Mexican Turkey Meatloaf recipe….
I flavor this one with green chiles, salsa, taco seasoning, beans, and onion. Then I top it with enchilada sauce and cheese. The result? GENIUS!
It packs a little heat, but man is it GOOD!!!! (You can use all mild flavors if you can’t take the heat.)
I know my pictures are not the best. It is hard to make meatloaf pretty… so DON’T JUDGE THIS MEATLOAF by the picture. Just take my word that this is some good stuff if you like a little Mexican spices.
This Mexican Turkey Meatloaf freezes well also. I often make a batch big enough for dinner and then extra to put in the freezer. I do meal prep for my husband’s lunches with Freshware 15-Pack 2 Compartment Bento Lunch Boxes with Lids – Stackable, Reusable, Microwave, Dishwasher & Freezer Safe – Meal Prep, Portion Control, 21 Day Fix & Food Storage Containers (25oz).
I try to pack him healthy lunches for work. He was eating at restaurants every day for lunch and it was making him gain weight. My meal prep has been the perfect solution. My meals are all healthy and wholesome and ready in the freezer. We have been really successful with it helping him eat better. Plus it saves a lot of money. The Mexican Quinoa and Jalapeño, Cilantro, & Lime Brown Rice freeze well also if you are looking for meal prep ideas!
