Spicy Southwest Meatloaf

Meatloaf is a standard peasant food. Every culture has a version; most use it to stretch a dollar and feed the “family”. That doesn’t mean flavor isn’t important to everyone. So I added spice with the chorizo, poblanos, and lots of onions and garlic. I hope you like it.

3/4 pound chorizo (Happy Family Ranch)
3/4 pound ground veal
3/4 pound ground beef (Happy Family Ranch)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon hot paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced onions
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Poblano pepper, diced
1 onion diced
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 cup salsa (as hot as you like it)

Ketchup to top

Bacon and gochujang paste on top are optional, but I did it.

Mix all meats together.

Add bread crumbs, paprika, chili powder, garlic, and onion.

Add eggs and salsa.

Mix all ingredients.

In a roasting pan, place the meatloaf mixture and shape into a loaf.

Top with ketchup (gochujung paste and bacon).

Bake for 1 1/2 hours at 350.

Let cool for 10 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
