Kidney beans and mashed potatoes are the hearty base to this zesty 'meatless loaf,' which is made flavorful with lots of peppers, barbecue sauce, and cilanttro.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and next 6 ingredients (onion through jalapeño); sauté 3 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, potato, and the next 7 ingredients (potato through beans). Spoon the potato mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes. Brush 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over loaf, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until done.

This is a keeper! Loved the spicy flavor and didn't miss the meat. I would use only half the jalapeno.

Flavorful and moist recipe. While soft, I didn't find it to be pasty as another reviewer said. Good as a loaf or as patties. Will make again.

I thought this loaf was original in its use of ingredients, and I enjoyed it. My husband thought it was too mushy and too spicy. I think you could bring it down a notch by adding half a jalapeno instead of a whole. The flavor is really excellent, but like the other reviewer said, it doesn't firm up too much.
