Meatloaf can be so boring, and often times it’s that go to staple when you don’t have anything else to make. This meatloaf recipe will change your opinion about meatloaf and will make you realize how much you can do with these recipes! Next time you think of making some meatloaf put something different in! You will be surprised with what you come up with!

I wanted to make a sweet and spicy meatloaf, the chorizojalapenos, and sweet chili sauce are so good together! If you aren’t a fan of spicy, you can certainly leave out the jalapenos.

To get started preheat your oven to 350°. Take a large mixing bowl and add your pork, beef, spices, onion, pepper, garlic, eggs, cream, and bread crumbs. I mix with my hands but that’s a personal preference. Make sure you mix well, but try not to over mix. Take half of the mixture and place on the bottom of a loaf pan and press down evenly. Take your chorizo and remove the casing carefully, to keep mold intact. Lay the chorizo down in the middle. Take the other half and place on top being sure to press down on the outsides to mold together into one loaf.

Once this is done place in the oven for 60 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°. Baste the top with the pan juices and chili sauce every 15 minutes or so. Place the jalapeno slices on top for the last 15-20 minutes. Once it is done baking, let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
