Ingredients

  • 1

    pound lean (90% or leaner) ground beef

  • ½

    cup chopped onion

  • cup fine, dry, whole-wheat breadcrumbs

  • 1

    large egg

  • 6

    tablespoons ketchup, preferably no-salt-added

  • 2

    teaspoons chili powder

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼

    teaspoon salt

  • ¼

    teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • ½

    cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

  • teaspoon ground chipotle pepper

Directions

Preparation Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat four 8- to 12-ounce small baking dishes, such as mini loaf pans, with cooking spray and place on a rimmed baking sheet. (Alternatively, make freeform meatloaves and bake directly on the baking sheet.) Combine beef, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, 2 tablespoons ketchup, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl; mix well. Divide the mixture into 4 even portions and place in the prepared baking dishes. Make a 1 1/2-inch-deep indentation with your finger down the length of each meatloaf. Stuff each with 2 tablespoons cheese and pinch the edges closed to seal. Combine the remaining 4 tablespoons ketchup and chipotle in a bowl; spread over each loaf. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of a loaf registers 165°F, 20 to 30 minutes.
