Tastes of Home with Frito-Lay recipe contest plus giveaway-Closed


GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED-THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED.

WINNER-Sara P at 

I remember growing up my grandfather use to always make Meatloaf and mash potatoes. He never really cooked much but when he did cook it was always that. Most of the time the things he cooked were too hot, so people didn't want to eat it, lol. After my grandfather passed away my grandmother always tried to make meatloaf and mash potatoes, but it was never like my grandfather's recipe. I know if my grandmother can't duplicate that recipe than I won't be able to as well.

I came up with a recipe inspired by Lay's Chipotle Ranch chips. The meatloaf will have a little heat just from the sauce while the mash potatoes give you a nice cool flavor. I like heat but I don't like it so much that you have to keep a jug of water near by.

Chipotle Meatloaf and Ranch Mash Potatoes

2 lb Ground Beef
1 egg
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup  finely chopped red bell peppers
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell peppers
1/2 cup milk
1 cup unsalted crackers
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt & pepper to taste
**if you want heat in your meat loaf add a chipotle chile or some ground red pepper**
**depending on how wet your mixture is you might not need that much milk**

Topping
1 chipotle chile  plus tsp adobo sauce from can
1 can of tomato sauce 
1 tbsp ketchup

Preheat oven 350 degrees
1. chop up onions, red and green peppers 
2. In large bowl, ground beef, vegetables, egg, crackers, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, then milk
3 Mix all the ingredients together well, add any salt and pepper now
4 In food processor, mix chipotle chile, adobo sauce, tomato sauce, & ketchup together well.
5. Form meat into loaf on baking sheet
6. Bake at 350 degree for 30 minutes
7. then spread topping onto of meatloaf bake for another 30 minutes

Ranch Mash Potatoes
4 medium potatoes(about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup Ranch Sour Cream Dip(I use Breakstone's)
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
salt and black pepper to taste

1. Boil potatoes in 3 qt of water
2. Bring to Boil
3. Boil potatoes for 20 minutes or until very tender
4. remove  skin from potatoes
5. put potatoes and other ingredients in a pot
6 Mix together and Enjoy





Frito-Lay has offered to give one of my readers a multi-pack of their regionally inspired chips.


 ·         These chips were inspired by popular American regional cuisine and include:     
  1. Northeastern U.S. – Lay’s Honey Mustard    
  2. Midwestern U.S. – Lay’s Creamy Garden Ranch  
  3. Northwestern U.S. – Lay’s Balsamic Sweet Onion
  4. Southwestern U.S. – Lay’s Chipotle Ranch
  5. Southeastern U.S. – Lay’s Cajun Herb & Spice

  • All of the Lay's Regional Flavored potato chips are made with all natural ingredients and cooked in healthier oils, like corn and sunflower oils, which contain 80% or more of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat-the "good fats." They also contain 0 grams of trans fats per serving!
  • There’s also less sodium in them than you might think – a 1-oz serving of our Lay’s Regional Flavored potato chips contains less salt than a plain bagel!
I wouldn't mind trying the Honey Mustard and the Balsamic Sweet Onion flavors.
