  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 325 F.  Lightly grease the bottom of a roasting pan with a few drops of vegetable or canola oil.

    In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, 2/3 cup of the salsa, the egg, milk, breadcrumbs, 1 cup of the cheese, the salt, pepper, cumin and cayenne and mix until just combined.
  3. Step 3

    Wet your hands with cold water, and form the meatloaf mixture into a loaf shape, about 6 inches wide and 3 to 4 inches high and place in the prepared pan.
  4. Step 4

    Spread the remaining 1/3 cup of salsa on the top of the meatloaf, and top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer reaches 160 F.

    Remove the pan from the oven and let the meatloaf stand for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with extra salsa on the side.
