A wonderful non-traditional meatloaf full of peppers, salsa and rice. The sublte flavour of cumin and other spices, brings out the zesty taste of mexican style foods.
Use a ripe avacado, pitted and sliced as garnish.
Add all your ingredients to the hamburger mixture along with your spices.
Use parchment paper for lining in your loaf pan.
Top the meatloaf with ketchup and salsa.
Add grated cheese halfway through the cooking time.
The cheese will melt and blend into the salsa keeping the meatloaf moist.
Let the meatloaf cool in the pan, then remove and sit before slicing.
Serve with salsa, fresh avacado slices, nacho chips and gacamole.
