Fajita Stuffed Meatloaf

Taco Meatloaf

  • Time: 40 mins
  • Serves: 5

What you need


  • 800g beef mince
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 cup tortilla chips
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups fried peppers/onions
  • 2 cups cream cheese
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup tomato salsa
  • 2/3 cup cheese

The words 'stuffed' and 'meatloaf' are without a doubt some of the most evocative in the English language. What could inspire more longing, especially when the big meaty thing has been stuffed with fajita ingredients - peppers, onions and loads of cheese? Very little, that's what. Sit back, relax, clean your hands and get ready to dive into an enormous bowl of mince.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F.
  2. Using (clean, please) hands, mix together the mince, seasoning, bashed up tortilla chips, tomato puree and egg.
  3. Push about 3/4 of it into a lined, greased loaf tin and press to the sides, leaving a gap in the middle.
  4. Mix together the peppers, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and salt and press into the gap. Cover with the remaining meat mixture and bake for 40 minutes.
  5. Take out of the tin and top with salsa and cheese then grill for 5 minutes on high.
