  • Combine ground beef, 1/2 of the tomato sauce, and 1/2 of the Colby-Jack cheese together in a large bowl; add tortilla chips, onions, eggs, green chile peppers, chili powder, and salt and mix well. Pack meat mixture into an 8x4-inch loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Drain grease from pan.

  • Pour remaining tomato sauce over meatloaf and sprinkle remaining cheese over tomato sauce. Cook in the oven until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

This was okay. I was hoping for a little more flavor out of it. I would add more seasoning next time. The meatloaf was very moist. Read More

I am somewhat meatloaf-challenged (can't keep it together!), so I was rather pleased with my results following this recipe! It was easy to pull together using ingredients I had on hand, and we thought it tasted great! Read More
