Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment.

Pulse the tortillas in a food processor until they are crumbs and transfer to a large bowl. Add the beef, pork, eggs, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, 1/2 cup of the tomatoes, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Mix with your hands until well combined. 

Using your hands, shape the mixture into a 12-by-3-inch log on the prepared baking sheet. Create a well in the center running the length of the log. Put the cheese in the well and top with the jalapenos. Shape the meatloaf mixture up and over the filling, making sure to seal completely; you should have a 12-by-4-inch loaf.

Whisk together the ketchup and remaining 1/2 cup diced tomatoes in a medium bowl. Spoon the mixture over the top and sides of the meatloaf. 

Bake until the meatloaf reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a serving platter and slicing.
