An easy, 1-bowl ground turkey meatloaf with cheese, chilies and salsa!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey (I use 7% fat)
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (unseasoned)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup salsa, divided
  • 1 cup packed spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • extra cheese and salsa, for serving, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients (using just 1/2 cup salsa). Mix well. I start with a fork to get it going then use my hands so I don’t overwork it.
  3. Turn the meatloaf mixture out onto an ungreased baking sheet and shape into a loaf, about 8 inches long.
  4. Top with remaining 1/4 cup salsa and bake at 400 for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove and let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
  6. Serve hot and enjoy!
