My Tex-Mex Meatloaf

M My Tex-Mex Meatloaf Ingredients:  1 lb. ground sirloin meat 1 lb. ground sausage 2 slices of toasted white or wheat bread finely crumbled or 1 cup croutons crushed * 1 - 4.5 oz. can diced mild green chilies 1 med. sweet yellow onion chopped 8 oz. shredded or small cubes of medium cheddar cheese or co-jack cheese (reserve 1/2) 1/2 c. medium salsa (or hot if you like it extra spicy) 1 egg slightly beaten 3 cloves of garlic pressed or crushed 2 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. ground cumin 2 tsp. dried oregano 1/2 cup of fresh chopped cilantro 1 tsp. sea salt Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together except 1/2 the cheese set aside. Make sure it is all blended together. Form it in a large loaf pan or any pan that will fit your meatloaf and still gives it room to release the fluids around it without spilling over. You can even use a cast iron skillet and make it round instead of loaf shaped. Cook for 1.5 - 2.0 hours. Check after 1.5 hours to see if done. If not, cook 1/2
