Southwestern Turkey Meatloaf

I decided to give some new flavors a try and I developed this incredibly flavorful and delicious Southwestern Turkey Meatloaf.



Happy Monday Slow Roasters! Today is On The Lighter Side at The Slow Roasted Italian. I would like to share with you a new meatloaf I created.

We surely love meatloaf in this house, but I get a little tired of the old standard Meatloaf with Balsamic Glaze which happens to be Chad’s favorite dish that I make and Munchkins favorite 3 Ingredient Meatloaf so, I decided to give some new flavors a try and I developed this incredibly flavorful and delicious Southwestern Turkey Meatloaf. It is a great low calorie option as it only has 267 calories per serving and 8 grams of fat.


We love it so much I made it a 12 serving dish, so we could freeze half.  But the other half never made it to the freezer.  We ate it for 4 meals straight!  It was delicious with some spicy refried beans and some corn. 


With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. I'm making meat loaf tonight, just ordinary meat loaf…I've never made turkey meat loaf…I've always been worried it would be dry. I like the green chiles and spices you added.

  2. Oh my goodness, this looks fantastic! Only 267 calories makes it even better! Great recipe and thanks for sharing!
