Mexican Meatloaf Muffins

Mexican Meatloaf MuffinsBaked in muffin cups, these tasty mini meatloaves get an extra taste sensation from a taco seasoning mix.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 pounds lean ground beef
1 (12-ounce) can NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
2 large eggs
1/2 cup ketchup
2 cups quick oats
2 (1.25-ounce) packets ORTEGA Taco Seasoning Mix
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried parsley

Suggested Toppings: Shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC).
  2. Combine ground beef, evaporated milk, eggs, ketchup, quick oats, taco seasoning, black pepper and parsley in large bowl until just mixed. Divide meat mixture into 20 ungreased muffin cups; mound tops slightly.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until no longer pink in center. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin cups.
  4. Serve meatloaf muffins over lettuce, cheese and tomatoes, if desired.

Makes 10 (2-muffin meatloaf) servings, or 20 muffin meatloaves.


  • Freeze half the meatloaf muffins for another meal. Wrap each in freezer wrap; freeze. To reheat, microwave unwrapped frozen meatloaf muffin on HIGH (100% power) for 2 minutes. If thawed, microwave for 1 minute.
  • Meat Loaf mixture can be divided into two ungreased 8 x 4-inch loaf pans instead of muffin cups. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until no longer pink in center.
  • Serve taco sauce with the muffins.
  • For a more “comfort food” type meal, serve with mashed potatoes.
  • Slice and serve on a dinner roll or wrapped in a flour tortilla.
  • These are quite portable, great for school lunches along with a packet of ketchup.
