Ingredients

For the Queso:

  • 1 pound of loose chorizo sausage
  • 1 pound of pasteurized prepared cheese product cut into 1” chunks
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese cut into 1” chunks
  • 10 ounce can of Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies

For the Meatloaf:

  • ½ loaf of French bread submerged in water
  • ½ small diced yellow onion
  • ½ seeded and small diced red bell pepper
  • ½ seeded and small diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 16 ounce can of drained black beans
  • 1 finely minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 16 strips of bacon
  • ¼ cup of sliced green onions for garnish
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • For the Queso: In a small pot on medium heat add in the chorizo and cook until all of the pink is gone, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Next, add in the cheeses and Ro*Tel® and cook over low heat until the cheese is melted. Keep warm.
  • For the Meatloaf: Squeeze all of the liquid out of the French bread and add it to a large bowl with the onion, peppers, black beans, chipotle peppers, ground beef, eggs, salt and pepper and thoroughly mix together.
  • Next, line 4 mini loaf pans with 4 strips of bacon each and evenly fill each pan with the meatloaf mixture.
  • Fold the remaining bacon over the meatloaf and bake in the oven on 375° for 45 minutes or until the bacon is crispy brown on top.
  • Remove the meatloaves from the pan, slice and serve 2 to 3 tablespoons of the queso sauce over top. Garnish with sliced green onions.
