*The recipe calls for ground chicken, but if you prefer, ground turkey would also work.
Mexican Chicken Loaf
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup tortilla crumbs (I just put some in a bag and smash them by hand)
3 tbs salsa
2 tb ranch dressing (again, use the real thing...less chemicals and more natural ingredients)
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 lb. ground chicken
1/2 cup shredded cheddar/jack cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, tortilla chip crumbs, salsa, ranch dressing, chili powder, and cumin. Add chicken and mix gently, but thoroughly. Place mixture into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 1 hour or until the temperature reaches 175 F. Top with shredded cheese and cover with foil. Let stand for 10 minutes. Slice and serve with your favorite toppings (sour cream, salsa, guacamole).
