Chipotle Cheddar Meatloaf


Originally, I was using a recipe from the Sargento cheese people - they had a Chipotle Cheddar pre-shredded cheese. I don't think they make it anymore, or at least, I can't find it. So, I've adjusted. This is the best meatloaf ever!

CHIPOTLE CHEDDAR MEATLOAF

1 pound ground beef or meatloaf mix (beef and pork)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 to 3 tablespoons chipotles in adobo puree (see this post for tip)
1/2 cup chili sauce, divided
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine meat, 1 cup cheese, chipotles in adobo puree, 1/4 cup chili sauce, onion, tortilla chips, egg and salt. Mix well. Shape into an oval loaf on a foil lined shallow pan. Brush remaining 1/4 cup chili sauce over loaf.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over meatloaf. Continue baking 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and internal temperature of meat is 160 degrees. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
