Picadillo Meatloaf


From EatingWell:  January/February 1998

The flavors of picadillo—a dish found all over Latin America—turn meatloaf into something more than the usual. Make it a meal: Accompany with cornbread and hot green beans splashed with vinegar.

6 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Spread oats in a shallow pan and bake until lightly toasted, 4 to 7 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Combine the toasted oats, ground beef, ground turkey, onion, bell pepper, garlic, egg, olives, raisins, salt, coriander, cinnamon, pepper and 1/4 cup taco sauce in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. With dampened hands, form into a 7-by-4-inch loaf. Drizzle with remaining 3/4 cup taco sauce.
  5. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of loaf registers 165°F, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.
