Mexican Taco Meatloaf


This Mexican-inspired meatloaf with taco seasoning is a delicious comfort food dish. My Mexican grandmother would use leftover corn tortilla chips in our meatloaf, and everyone loved it! They all wanted seconds along with the recipe.

1 9x5x3-inch loaf


  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips

  • ¾ cup shredded pepper Jack cheese

  • 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning mix

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup milk

  • ¼ cup mild red taco sauce, or more to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix together beef, onion, tortilla chips, pepper Jack cheese, and taco seasoning in a large bowl until combined. Whisk together eggs, milk, and taco sauce in a medium bowl. Add to beef mixture and stir until well combined.

  3. Press mixture into a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Pour a strip of taco sauce down the center of loaf.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and browned on top, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of loaf should read at least 160 degrees F (72 degrees C).
