I absolutely LOVE this Green Chili Meatloaf. While my Sweet Ketchup Meatloaf has been a long time favorite of ours, this one is now my favorite.

I love the flavor of green chilies and I try to cook with them as often as I can. I also love Frank’s RedHot Sauce so making this meatloaf recipe was a no-brainer for me.

If you are sensitive to spicy food, I recommend you adjust the amount of Hot Sauce for you and your guests.

I usually like to use 85% – 15% ground beef when making meatloaf. I find that if I use leaner ground beef the meatloaf is not as moist as I like. Conversely, using ground beef with a higher fat percentage makes it a little too greasy for my liking.

When it comes to baking your meatloaf, you have a couple of options. You can bake it the traditional way in a loaf pan or bake it on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Depending on how lean your ground beef is, you may find the meatloaf sitting in grease. One way to avoid this is to shape the meat mixture into the shape of a loaf and bake it on a baking sheet. This will allow the grease to run off into the pan.

For some reason, I always seem to add too many onions to my meatloaf. While the moisture from the onions will make the meatloaf moist, it will also make it “crumbly”. I would suggest using whatever amount that works best for you and your guests.

Our friends over at the USDA recommend an internal temperature of 160°F. This should be enough to kill salmonella.

You can take the meatloaf out of the oven around 150°F and let it rest for 10 minutes. Check the internal temperature again before slicing & serving.

You will need the following ingredients to make this Green Chili Meatloaf recipe (see recipe card for quantities): Ground Beef, Bread Crumbs, Eggs, Yellow Onion, Green Chilies, Milk and Frank’s RedHot Sauce.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until well combined.
  3. Place mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan.
  4. Bake for 1 1/4 hours or until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

    I’ve made this delicious meatloaf a few times now. The only things I changed were to add a little salt and pepper and cheddar cheese.
    Great flavor from the chiles,I used fresh roasted hatch chiles. Yum!
