Servings 8


  • 8 oz block cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 ½ lb ground beef
  • 1 c black beans
  • 1 c corn frozen or canned (drained)
  • 1 ¼ c crushed tortilla chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c salsa divided
  • 1 pkt taco seasoning
  • toppings such as salsa, diced avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, etc optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with aluminum for easy clean-up.
  • First, you'll cut the block of cheese into two sections - one being about ¾ of the block and the other ¼. Cut the larger piece into 1 cm cubes; shred the remaining cheese and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the ground beef, black beans, corn, crushed tortilla chips, eggs, ¾ c salsa, taco seasoning and the cubed cheddar cheese.
  • Dump onto the prepared baking sheet and shape into a loaf that is about 12 inches long and 6 inches wide. (Doesn't need to be exact!)
  • Bake for 55 minutes; remove from the oven and spread the remaining salsa over the top and then sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
  • Bake an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatloaf reaches 160°F.
  • Cut into slices and top with sour cream, salsa, avocado chunks, etc, if desired!
