Skinny Mexican Meatloaf, Mmm



Pinterest
Print Friendly

Get ready to make the most delicious meatloaf!  Very different from a traditional one…It has all the great flavors of Mexican food in 1 skinny loaf.  It’s so low in calories and fat thanks to using extra lean ground beef and free forming the loaf on  a cookie sheet instead of baking in a loaf pan. Now all the fat oozes out onto the pan instead of staying in the meatloaf.  The skinny for a generous 3 slice serving, 215 calories, 4 grams fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time 1 hour


Ingredients

1 pound extra lean ground beef or lean ground turkey, see shopping tip

1 cup red or yellow onions, chopped

½ cup red bell pepper, chopped

½ cup corn (cut off the cob) or frozen, thawed

½ cup salsa plus ½ cup for topping, I love Pace Chunky Salsa (medium) or your favorite

1 ounce (~⅓ cup) reduced-fat tortilla chips, crushed, see shopping tips

2 egg whites

Fresh ground black pepper, to taste


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line a cookie sheet or baking pan with foil.

3. In a large bowl, combine beef, onions, red bell pepper, corn, ½ cup salsa, crushed tortilla chips, egg whites, and a little pepper. Mix well until thoroughly combined.

4. Place meatloaf mixture in center of cookie sheet and shape into a 12 x 4 inch loaf by hand.

5. Spread remaining ½ cup salsa evenly over the top of loaf.  Add more, if desired.

6. Bake 1 hour and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Cut into 12 slices.

Serves 4 (each serving 3 slices)


Healthy Benefits


Trader Joe’s extra lean ground beef is a terrific, healthy choice. It has 130 calories and 4 grams of fat for 4 ounces. Free forming the loaf cuts the calories and fat down even further.

Salsa is actually a very healthy food. Thanks to the tomatoes, onions and chilies, it’s heart healthy and can help to prevent certain types of cancer.  A ½-cup serving of salsa contains approximately 35 calories, 2 grams of fiber and 0 fat.


Shopping Tips

I used Trader Joe’s extra lean ground beef.  Most supermarkets sell extra lean ground beef or use lean ground turkey, if desired.

I used Trader Joe’s organic reduced-fat tortilla chips. There are several brands of baked tortilla chips in the supermarkets such as Guiltless Gourmet or Baked Tositos Scoops.


Serving Tips

Serve with my recipe for, Incredible Mexican-Style Corn on the Cob  or warmed corn tortillas and a simple salad, green vegetable or even avocado slices.

  11. Mexi Meatloaf « HomeLifeWithMrsB Says:

    [...] Man oh man do I have a recipe for you to try. I’m not much of a meatloaf fan. I’ve only had my mother’s meatloaf (recipe for that coming soon) . My husband loves meatloaf and request it often. However, I didn’t want him to have the same ole same. He would have been ok with it but I thought I’d try something different. So in my quest for a different meatloaf and didn’t look gross, I came across this Recipe. [...]

    This sounds very interesting!

  20. Tracy Says:

    Is the red pepper referring to red bell pepper, or a different kind of pepper?

  21. admin Says:

    Tracy it’s red bell pepper. Sorry for the confusion. I just clarified it on the recipe.
    Enjoy!
    My best,
    Nancy
