Gluten Free Crock Pot Taco Meatloaf

Wes gets the prize around here for looking up and trying out new recipes! He found the original recipe over at TasteofHome and we only tweaked a few things. I must say it ended up being pretty delicious… and that’s coming from someone who’s typically not a huge meatloaf fan. {My grandmother even told me it’s the beast meatloaf she’s ever tried!} Another benefit of this recipe is that it’s relatively quick to throw together and the crock pot does all the cooking! Wes threw this together over his lunch break the other day and we all enjoyed it for supper.

Meatloaf Ingredients
  1. 2 lbs ground beef
  2. 2 cups crushed tortilla chips
  3. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  4. 1 cup salsa
  5. 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  6. 3 TBS {or about 1/2 a packet} taco seasoning
Topping Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup ketchup
  2. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  3. {optional: the original recipe calls for 2 TBS hot sauce, but we left this out!}
Instructions
  1. Place all Meatloaf ingredients, except ground beef, into a large bowl and mix well. Add in the ground beef, then shape into a ball.
  2. Line crock pot with tin foil and coat with cooking spray. {This not only makes clean up easier, but it helps to lift the loaf out of the pot for easier slicing!} Place meatloaf onto the foil in crock pot, cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours until no pink remains {if you'r using a thermometer, the temp should reach 160 degrees F.}
  3. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over meatloaf for the last hour of cooking. When meatloaf has finished cooking, let stand for 10 minutes, then remove to slice if desired.
