Easy Taco Meatloaf

This recipe is so easy to make.  Just mix up ground pork, ground beef, a 10-ounce bag of Doritos, salsa, cheese, taco seasoning, and eggs.  We formed the mixture into serving size mini meatloaves.   Topping the meatloaves with more salsa and cheese helps keep them extra moist.  Bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes, but be sure to use a meat thermometer.

Since meatloaves can vary in size using a meat thermometer to determine doneness is very important!  We don’t guess or look at color with ground meat, we always use a digital meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F for an internal temperature.

We love that this recipe makes enough for us to have a couple more meals throughout the week!

Should I Buy Meat at the Grocery Store?

As I’ve shared we are farmers.  We raise pigs and cows and my in-laws raise pig and turkeys.  We always have plenty of our own beef in the freezer so that’s where we got the ground beef for this recipe.  While we raise pigs we usually buy our pork at the grocery store because there’s only a set amount of bacon, ham and pork chops on each pig.  Sometimes we want more or less of a certain cut of pork and with limited freezer space, it usually makes sense for us to pick up the pork we want when it’s on sale.  So we bought the ground pork at Kroger.

I know that pigs from both sides of our families are sold to packing plants that eventually sell their meat to Kroger.  So we do support our own family and families all across the United States just like ours when we buy meat at the grocery store.
