3 Chili spicy meatloaf

Production: 10 – Serving
Preparation: 30 Minutes
Cooking: 60 Minutes

Meatloaf is a delicious, economical, practical and easy to prepare dish. You can also make it a very special recipe inspired by the original cultures of the sunny south. In our case, with this spicy meatloaf, it is Mexico that we wanted to see on our plates with the use of corn and a generous variety of peppers that are typical flavors of this region.

Note 1: If you do not have Gorria pepper on hand, know that it is the same species as the famous Espelette pepper.
Piquin pepper, for its part, may be replaced by crushed chili flakes easily found in supermarkets. However, it will taste less fruity but almost as spicy.

Note 2: For people who love their food a bit less spicy, remove the Piquin chili from this recipe.

Enjoy it!
