Cheddar Jalapeno Meatloaf Recipe has the slight heat of jalapenos with a touch of sweet in the topping and accented with chopped cilantro. I made this recipe to fit my favorite sweet/heat flavor profile and I'm extremely happy with the results!
In a large mixing bowl, combined ground chuck, eggs, onion, cheddar, jalapeno, oregano, basil, garlic, breadcrumbs, and salt. Mix lightly with hands until combined. Don't overmix.
Place meat mixture in 1-1/2 quart glass loaf pan.
Combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard. Spread over top of meatloaf.
Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Drain fat from loaf.
Serve with chopped fresh cilantro if desired.
