I don’t know about you, but when the temperature gets cold and the nights are long, I crave something hearty and filling to make me nice and toasty! My spicy Mexican Turkey Meatloaf recipe is just the thing to warm you up.
No cold salads, or undressed veggies, I need substance! Meatloaf can be heavy, but this turkey meatloaf is anything but, with just the right amount of spice. A little spiciness goes a long way towards tricking your palate into feeling satisfied, without needless fat or salt. I created my spicy Mexican Turkey Meatloaf to be filling, tasty, and most importantly healthy. It’s like a Taco without all the fat and carbs.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the salsa and cheese. Shape into a loaf.
Place in a baking pan and bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with salsa and cheese; continue baking for 5 minutes more.
I like to serve this with guacamole, sour cream and warm, soft, corn taco shells.
