Not your mama’s meatloaf

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

I love comfort food and I love spicy food…when I can have both in one bite, well…that’s pretty much my idea of perfect.

This is one of my favorite spicy comfort foods. Its meatloaf kicked up a few notches. There’s all kinds of goodness in this recipe – zippy pepper jack cheese, crunchy, French fried onions and my favorite: sizzling fried jalapeno coins.

Doesn’t this sound amazing?

It is! I’ve always loved a little heat with my food. The hotter the better. Spicy? Sign. Me. Up.

Give “Not Your Mama’s Meatloaf” a go and see if you don’t agree. It looks pretty fancy…well, as fancy as meatloaf can look…but it’s easy enough for a weeknight. The jalapeno coins take a little bit of effort but they’re SO WORTH IT and really make the dish pop!

  1. That used to be me- up all night with heartburn, thanks goodness for OTC Nexium 24HR. I don’t have to avoid foods I love again! (Red tomato sauces and wine were the worst!) #client

  2. This meatloaf recipe looks amazing. The jalapeno coins sold me on it right away. The tip on making sure to have Nexium available is very helpful, too.
