First off-I am going to tell you straight up that this isn’t a food blog…that’s my warning to not expect fancy food pictures.
Kelli has recently been changing her food eating. She just seems to feel better if she eats gluten free..it’s not medically diagnosed, it’s just something that she has tried and seems to work.
In light of that, there are several foods that immediately seem off limits which can seem really frustrating. Last weekend I found a Mexican Meatloaf recipe so we gave it a try hoping that we could find a meatloaf recipe that she could eat.
We forgot to take a picture of it all nice and in the crock pot. We didn’t remember until we were packing some up in a pie tin so Kelli could take it home for Jason.
Anyway…be WAY encouraged that it tastes WAY better than it looks!! Even though there aren’t many of us around here I still made the 4 pound batch. Hubby is in the field and loves cold leftover meatloaf sandwiches. Here’s the recipe.
4 pounds of hamburger
2 cups coarsely crushed corn chips
2/3 cup taco sauce
4 T Taco Seasoning
2 beaten eggs
1 cup grated cheese
Mix all of the ingredients together. Shape into a loaf. Place in the crock pot on high for 4 hours.
Our opinion on the meatloaf….as long as I can eat gluten, I like my regular recipe better with bread crumbs. Typically I like my taco to taste like a taco and my brat to taste like a brat…but I still really liked it. If Kelli is coming for a visit, I would definitely make it again. If it’s me and Hubby…I’ll probably make my old recipe.
