This keto Mexican meatloaf is a perfect gluten-free family weeknight dinner. Packed with tasty, healthy ingredients like a whole container of the freshest, juiciest salsa, black olives, crumbled queso fresco, cilantro, a little coconut flour, and a couple pantry staples, this isn't your grandma's meatloaf.
In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients well. Use your hands and don't overmix.
Form into a loaf on a rack placed over a roasting pan. See photo in blog post below this recipe for an example. Mine was approx. 12.5"x5.5"x2".
Bake until the ground beef is cooked through to 160°F at the center of the thickest interior point. Ours took 1 hour.
Reserve 1/4 of the salsa to serve over top of the meatloaf. Alternatively, purchase two containers and use a full 12 oz in the meatloaf mixture and as much as you like over top. Nutrition facts include one 12 oz. container of salsa.If you are salt-sensitive, cut the salt in half. You can sub sea salt or iodized salt for the kosher salt. If you do, cut it to 1 teaspoon. For a spicier dish, add some finely diced jalapeños into your initial meatloaf mixture.This recipe makes 12 servings. Three pounds is a lot of meat. Our family of six loves leftovers. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your individual needs.Nutrition facts do not factor in the ground beef fat lost during cooking on the roasting pan rack.We do not recommend cooking this meatloaf without the rack.The rendered fat in the pan will cause the meatloaf to become soggy and fall apart. If you want to add back more fat, feel free to spoon some over your meatloaf after cooking. Nutritional information for my recipes is provided as a courtesy and are only an approximation.
