Mixed together ground beef, egg, chopped onions and red peppers, cajun seasoning (I believe it was McCormick brand) and bread crumbs.
TIP - Cheap way to get bread crumbs and use up your bread ends - put them in the food processor and make bread crumbs! I used multigrain and whole grain bread ends.
Remove casing from chorizo sausage and place on bottom half of meatloaf.
I spread the chorizo so it wasn't quite so spicy all in one bite, though to make it even less, you could use less chorizo, mix it in or not use it at all.
Put the rest of the meatloaf mixure on top and spread chili sauce over it.
My favorite part are the crispy end bits:)
Adults liked it, my oldest son and daughter ate it but my pickiest wasn't thrilled, but when is he ever:)
As far as cutting costs - both the lean ground beef and the chorizo were from ALDIs along with the onions and the green beans (frozen) and the red peppers were from produce junction.
You could also go healthier and use ground turkey of course.
