Not Your Mother's Meat Loaf!

So here's the deal: I grew up eating my mom's standard issue meatloaf and I loved it but my dear husband didn't have that experience and he's not so fond of this dish. Consequently, the only way I can really interest him in a meatloaf is if it promises to be spicy. I really crave this dish sometimes cause I think it reminds me of my mom. I still miss her so and maybe the meatloaf is comfort food?

I have invented yet another go at a spicy meatloaf which I have named:

Mamacita's Wild Loaf—eat at your own risk!

1 lb grass fed ground beef ( my salute to health)
1 lb ground pork
1 envelope Lipton's Onion Soup mix
2/3 cup spicy ketchup (like Melinda's Habanero ketchup—I buy mine at TJ Maxx-I used both Chipoltle and Habanero in this cause I had just little bit of each left in the bottles!)
2 eggs
¾ cup Progresso Italian bread crumbs
½ can condensed tomato soup

Mix all the above ingredients together EXCEPT a 1/3 cup of the ketchup and the half can of tomato soup. Mix these two ingredients together and heat on stove right before serving.

After ingredients are well mixed (I do this with my hands), shape into loaf and place on broiler rack of broiler pan. That way the grease can drip down and the loaf doesn't sit in the fat.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Bring it out of the oven and let it sit while you heat up the sauce.Spoon sauce over the entire meatloaf and pass extra at table.

This is total yum!

Serve with baked potatoes decked out with some Greek non-fat yogurt and cheddar cheese and a green vegetable.
