Picadillo Meatloaf

The flavors of picadillo—a dish found all over Latin America—turn meatloaf into something more than the usual. Make it a meal: Accompany with cornbread and hot green beans splashed with vinegar.

Serves 6

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 65 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 8 ounces lean ground beef, preferably ground round
  • 8 ounces ground turkey breast
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup medium-hot taco sauce, divided

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Spread oats in a shallow pan and bake until lightly toasted, 4 to 7 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3

Combine the toasted oats, ground beef, ground turkey, onion, bell pepper, garlic, egg, olives, raisins, salt, coriander, cinnamon, pepper and 1/4 cup taco sauce in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.

Step 4

Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. With dampened hands, form into a 7-by-4-inch loaf. Drizzle with remaining 3/4 cup taco sauce.

Step 5

Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of loaf registers 165°F, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.
