This is a great combination of Mexican flavors with light ingredients. This is a great make-ahead meal. The meatloaf can be assembled the night before and topped with half of the enchilada sauce, then covered and refrigerated overnight. Throw it in the oven the next day for a quick and easy meal.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, ground chicken, black beans, corn, green chiles, salsa, taco seasoning, bread crumbs, and egg whites until thoroughly combined.

  • Form the mixture into a loaf shape and place into the prepared baking dish.

  • Pour half the enchilada sauce over the meatloaf.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

  • Remove from oven and pour the remaining sauce over the loaf. Return to oven and cook until the meatloaf is no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, another 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat loaf should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  • Slice and serve with pan sauce spooned over the slices.

This was sooooo good I did make alot of additions to this recipe though. I used the entire egg also cut the recipe in 1/2 bc I only had1 lb of turkey. added cheese put in 1/2 of the green ench sauce in the mix and topped the rest before putting in oven. small onion garlic rotel tomato sauce cilantro fresh thyme and oregano canned mushrooms and I used the homemade taco seasoning from this website as well. Really good I cooked for about 1 hour at 350 and I had left overs from a family of 4. It was a huge loaf bc of all of the additions and it was sooo moist. I am def making this again! Thanks!

I made this meat loaf to the letter and when I pulled it out at 45 minutes as directed to put MORE enchilada sauce on it it was still pretty moist so I didn't do it. Sorry for my liking you don't "scoop out" meat loaf from a baking dish...it kind of crumbles like other reviews state this is "almost" a taco pie or taco casserole...so changing the description would do a lot to prepare cooks for what they're gonna get. The "meatloaf" WAS tasty if crumbly. IF I make it again it will have black olives and chopped onions (what Mexican meat dish doesn't have onions?) and maybe just one whole egg and only 15 oz. of sauce undivided and a whole cup of bread crumbs I have to make it more like the meat loaf my family expects.

Wonderful recipe!!! I did not change the recipe but I used better ingredients. I used Cuban style black beans from Trader Joe's. I used frozen fire roasted corn also from TJs. I used fresh Pico de Gallo from Fresh and Easy for the salsa and panko breadcrumbs.Used the whole can of green chiles-why waste them? Made two meatloaves and it would be easy to freeze one. Will make this again and again. Thanks! Read More

1 lb turkey 1/2 lb beef 1/2 lb sausage = Yum! I omitted the green chiles used 2 whole eggs only 1/4c of bread crumbs and sauced the top at beginning of baking only put rest of sauce on table. It had plenty of flavor and moisture. I made these individual meat loaves in large (Demarle) muffin pan and regular size muffin pan as well (low carb version w/out corn or beans). Cheese and sour cream on the side. I'll make these for my family again. Read More

For a low fat heart healthy recipe this can't be beat. It is so very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly. I could not find enchilada sauce so I swapped it for the bottle of taco sauce I had on hand. Thank you for sharing it JRS_cook. Read More

Lighter Mexican Meatloaf Haiku: "Five stars for the taste. Fiesta funky meatloaf! But crumbled too much." I'm normally a meatloaf purist with just the basic ingredients so this was a fun change. Had to halve the recipe having only 1 lb. ground turkey but stuck w/ everything else as directed in the recipe. (Mine was more like 350 deg. for a little over an hr.) I used a mild enchilada sauce which turned out to still have a little kick to it so I had to scrap and salvage the sauce-less loaf bites for my little one. Husband and I agreed that since it was kinda fall-apartey that we would've eaten it in a tortilla w/ some melted cheese and been happier that way than trying to slice and serve it like a traditional meatloaf. Still muy delicioso! Read More

Very good. Very moist. I followed the recipe as written. I had no issues with 'crumbling' as others have noted. Read More
