Mexican Meatloaf

Mexican Meatloaf

It’s been nearly two years ago since I first posted this Mexican Meatloaf; however, shortly after I removed the picture due to the fact I really had no idea what I was doing then!  Of course, I don’t really have any idea now but at least you can tell that there is actually food in this picture!  It has taken me that long to get a new picture of this dish.

I have no idea why other than to say when I went gluten free I really was not sure what to use to replace the cream soups.  Luckily, after asking on the Facebook Fan Page, I landed on this recipe for Cream of Mushroom Soup on Salad in a Jar.  This worked like a charm then I left the mushrooms out and added about 1/2 a cup of Chicken Broth to give the taste of Cream of Chicken Soup.  The result?  Perfection!

I have loved this meatloaf since my mother-in-law introduced me to it many years ago and it still remains to be one of my husband’s favorite meals and his most requested!

  1. Thank you for this post. I’m going to get the ingredients today and make it for dinner tomorrow for my husband and teenage son. They’ll love it and I love the fact it makes a nice big pan. Nice big pan recipes are great when feeding a hungry husband and starving teen. lol

    ps-Congrats on the upcoming arrival of your baby girl. Praying for you and your sweet family. :)

    • Thank you! That’s too funny…probably why my mother-in-law made this all the time for my husband. She had 2 boys and a husband to feed. lol

      • Just a quick update…I did make this on Friday and my husband and son LOVED it. Gobbled the leftovers up on Saturday for lunch, too. Thanks again, Kristy, for the recipe. I use your site often for ideas, this one just hit home with us! :)

  2. Oh yum. I love these kinds of recipes and I think this will make an appearance on the menu soon.

  3. This sounds sooo good! What would you recommend as a good replacement for the cream of mushroom soup? (Just another can of cream of chicken, or perhaps cheddar cheese soup?) I am allergic to mushrooms…if you have any suggestions for modifications, I’d be happy to hear! Either way, I will be trying this soon – I am sure there are lots of substitutions I can experiment with. :)

  4. Do you think that this would work with regular rice or will it only be cooked with the minute rice? or maybe partially cooked rice? I just bought 25 lbs of rice so I am looking for recipes to use it all :) I can’t justify going out and getting minute rice.

    Plus it looks like there is tons of liquid in the recipe and it doesn’t look to be a creamy or liquidy on the plate. We like recipes like that so I hope to add it to the list to make soon!!!

    • Yes, I think it would work. I would probably cook the rice first then add it to the ingredients after they are done with the bubbling boil step. The reason minute rice works so well is that when you add the ingredients to the skillet they do not take long to reach the boil.

  5. Kristy,

    What a great recipe that kids are bound to love! This would be great to make ahead of time and then pop in the oven on a busy weeknight!

  6. I made this last night for dinner and the whole family LOVED it! This will be a regular in our house now and will be in the freezer when I have my baby in January. Thanks for the awesome recipe! I think I might add a can of pinto or black beans next time, but it really doesn’t need it.

  7. Made it tonight and it was a hit! With 2 picky eaters its very rare that 1 dish makes everyone happy!!! Thanks so much!

  8. Wow, this looks uhh-MAYzing!!!!!!! I love meatloaf. I’m not like that “meatloaf, beetloaf – I hate meatloaf” kid on a Christmas Story, lol. It’s really my fave. But, now this mexican twist sounds like a great one! The crunch of those Fritos would be terrific! Put a little sour cream on the side….Mmmmmm. Thanks for sharing!
