Jul 9, 2015

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb (750 g) extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 can (10 oz/284 mL) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) fat-free egg product
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) plain bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt-free garlic-and-herb seasoning
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin
  • Old El Paso* Thick 'n Chunky Salsa, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375ºF. In large bowl, mix all ingredients except salsa. Spoon mixture into 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish; pat into 9x5-inch loaf.
  • 2
    Bake uncovered about 1 hour or until meat thermometre inserted in centre reads 160ºF. Drain any liquid before slicing. Serve with salsa.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Success Hint: You can make this meat loaf in a 9x5-inch loaf pan, but patting it into a loaf in a slightly larger pan allows a nice brown surface to form on the top and sides.
  • Tip 2
    Did You Know: Small cans of tomatoes with green chilies are available in a couple of brands. They are sometimes found in the Mexican foods section and sometimes are with the canned vegetables. If you can't find a 10-ounce can, use a little more than 1 cup from a 14.5-ounce can of Mexican-flavoured diced tomatoes.
