I've been on a salsa kick lately. My Fiancee asked if I would make meatloaf tonight. I warned him that it was going to be one of my "throw together" recipes. I'm so thankful he's willing to try anything I come up with. :-)
2 lbs. ground beef
12 oz. salsa
1-1/3 cup bread crumbs (I used garlic & herb)
1/2-1 tsp. liquid smoke
Chopped Onions (as much or as little as you want)
Smoosh (yes, that is a cooking term) everything together with your hands until well blended.
Put in a 9 x 5 bread pan. Anything smaller probably won't work. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.
I found the original recipe in Taste of Home's Summer Slow Cooker Meals recipe book. I changed a few things, and here it is:
1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch radishes (approx. 10), sliced
1/2-3/4 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/2 Tbsp. Parsley flakes
Mix all ingredients together in a small serving dish, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
|Salad ingredients..the Italian dressing was used in the original recipe.|
Both recipes were a success, and enjoyed by all of us. Yay! That is not always the case. :-)
Please let me know if you try these recipes, and I hope you enjoy it too!
