Mexican Meatloaf


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  • 4 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 3/4 cup fresh salsa
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix thoroughly the ground beef and taco seasoning; set aside. In a medium saucepan, heat the refried beans over medium low heat until they are completely heated through.
  3. Place the ground beef mixture on a large piece of foil. Press the mixture into an approximately 1 inch thick square shape. Spread the refried beans evenly over the top of the flattened beef. Layer the flour tortillas on top of the refried beans, trimming the edges to fit the square. Layer tortillas with salsa and Cheddar cheese, staying 1/2 to 1 inch away from edges of the square.
  4. Gently roll the layered beef into a Swiss roll shape, pressing and compacting the loaf as you go. Pinch and seal the edges. Wrap in the foil and seal.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 40 to 45 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Cut loaf in half to test for doneness, if necessary.

No More Tears
To reduce tears while cutting onions, freeze onions for 20 minutes before chopping. Also, use a very sharp knife when chopping onions and chop quickly. You can save both time and tears by chopping many onions at once. Freeze the extras in an airtight container for up to 3 months. (Before sauteing, thaw the onions and pat them dry. Frozen chopped onions can be added directly to soups or casseroles.)
