So Simple Mexican Meatloaf.... Jalapeno's and Cheese!

Just a quick 'fly-by' post to get this in my 'remember this one' file!  Last weekend I had to make a quick dinner but was in no way in the mood to cook.  Ground Beef is a simple starting point, so I grabbed a package out of the deep freeze and put it in the microwave to thaw.  Standing in front of the ground beef on the counter, I stared at it.... and decided to make jalapeno and cheddar cheese meatballs.  Except... I wasn't in the mood to even make meatballs.  Instead I decided to call it meatloaf.  In a bowl the meat and a handful of ingredients went and then into the oven.  The result was a simple Mexican meatloaf that was a hit.

Mexican Meatloaf

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 handful shredded cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)
Jalapeno's to taste.  I used about 1/2 cup lightly chopped

Mix in a bowl and place in a greased pan to bake.  Bake approximately 40-60 minutes depending on how much meat you used, until the center is done completely.  You can drizzle taco sauce or salsa on top.  Serve with sour cream and guacamole if you wish!
