Enchilada Meatloaf Muffins

Ingredients:

For meatloaf muffins:

  • 1lb (453g) ground chicken breast

  • 1 cup (185g) cooked quinoa

  • ½ cup (120g) finely diced yellow onion (about ½ small onion)

  • ½ cup (66g) mild red enchilada sauce

  • ¼ cup (57g) egg whites

  • 2 tablespoons (17g) “McCormick” less sodium taco seasoning

For topping:

  • ¼ cup (33g) mild red enchilada sauce

  • ¾ cup (68g) “Kraft” Mexican blend shredded cheese

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan well with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Mix together all the meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl.

  3. Divide the mixture among the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes. 

  4. Remove the pan from oven. Divide the remaining enchilada sauce among the muffins, spooning about 1 teaspoon of sauce on top of each muffin. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.

  5. Garnish with lime, cilantro, or chopped red onion. Serve alongside rice, beans, quinoa, salad, veggies, or tortillas. 

Notes:

  1. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  2. If you can’t find ground chicken breast use 99% lean ground turkey breast instead. The macros are nearly identical!
