2 eggs, beaten
1 + 1/2 pounds ground beef (85% lean)
1 cup salsa (preferably one with green peppers in it)
1/3 cup diced yellow onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
1 + 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons chile powder
1 teaspoon oregano, crushed between fingertips (preferably Mexican)
salt and fresh black pepper
1/4 cup ketchup or hot sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
In a large mixing bowl with a fork whisk the eggs together. Add the rest of the ingredients except the ketchup including 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Combine with a fork until well mixed. If it seems too wet add another tablespoon or two of bread crumbs.
Dump it out into the pan and form it into a loaf. Coat it all over with the ketchup or hot sauce.
Bake 45 – 50 minutes or until cooked through in the center. Let sit five minutes before slicing.
