Instructions Checklist

  • Mix together ground beef, bread crumbs, eggs, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl until combined. Press about 3/4 of the meat mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a loaf pan, leaving a well in the middle.

  • Mix together cream cheese, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, jalapeno peppers, garlic powder, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a separate bowl until combined. Press cream cheese mixture into the well of the meatloaf. Cover with remaining meat mixture, pressing along the edges to seal. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove from the oven, brush with barbeque sauce, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons grated Cheddar. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Place meatloaf under the broiler and cook until barbeque sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

For those that like it hot! I used 4 1/2 jalapeños in the cheese mixture, 1 1/2 jalapeños in the meat and 1 jalapeños sliced on top as a warning to those that can’t handle the heat. Also put bacon in the cheese mixture in the cheese and meat mixtures. Topped the meatloaf with extra hot BBQ sauce. Read More

Amazing! I did I’d make some adjustments because the cream cheese was a lot! So I used 4 pounds of hamburger with the recipe and kept the cream cheese portion of the same. Everyone has asked me for this recipe. Love it and it is now staple In our home. The kids even eat it and it’s not too spicy.? Read More
