This cheese stuffed meatloaf with chorizo will knock your tastebuds out with its amazing flavor! Using budget friendly chorizo with the beef really packs a flavor punch! I have to say, I nearly fainted when I cut into this cheese stuffed meatloaf. The melty cheese immediately started oozing out and just looked absolutely amazing!
Meatloaf is that classic American dinner that is so comforting and homey. I can’t imagine a kid not growing up with memories of mom bringing meatloaf to the table with a big pile of mashed potatoes! Use cauliflower mash now, of course.
This cheese stuffed meatloaf though. It is to. die. for. and so easy on your wallet! By using chorizo as a portion of the meat instead of all ground beef, we have brought down the cost a bit. I’m all for that!
OMG look at that cheese!
This cheese stuffed meatloaf was really the brainchild of having some chorizo in the fridge that needed to be used. I had bought ground beef for meatloaf, but it wasn’t going to be this amazing meatloaf. It was going to be boring meatloaf. I am so glad I had that chorizo because this is seriously amazing and a new favorite!
Let’s talk a minute about coconut flour. I am trying to use it in recipes instead of almond flour because almond flour is so freaking expensive! It is almost double the cost of coconut flour, plus, you use much less coconut flour in a recipe than you would almond flour. I would encourage anyone to add a bag to your pantry. It really goes a long way!

pre-heat oven to 350F
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl
add half of the meatloaf mixture to a large loaf pan and press into the bottom (if you don't have a loaf pan big enough, then you can form the mixture into a loaf shape on a sheet pan)
Place the cheese into the center of the loaf pan, leaving about an inch on all sides.
add the rest of the meatloaf to the pan and press it down to compress it slightly.
Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until an internal thermometer reads 165F
