This came from a cookbook from QVC and is worth the price of the book just by itself.… 500 Low-Carb Recipes. GREAT book
1 lb. Ground beef
1 lb. Ground pork
1 C crushed pork rinds. (I used corn chips, finely crushed or bread crumbs.)
1 can (4.5 oz) diced green chilies , mild
1 med. onion, finely chopped (if pieces are too big the loaf will tend to fall apart)
8 oz Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
¾ C salsa, mild
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 t dried oregano
2 t ground cumin
1 t salt or vegi salt.
Preheat oven to 350º
(My instructions. Not from the books recipe…)
Combine all ingredients until fully blended.
Form it into a loaf and bake it on whatever it is you use for a meatloaf. I use a cookie sheet. Use a meatloaf pan or almost anything else that will catch the juices.
Cookbook note: Mexicali Meatloaf may crumble a bit, anyway, because it’s quite tender.
