Here's a quick and easy, healthy recipe that feeds a large family: Meatloaf With Rotel - this was my mama's famous meatloaf recipe that everyone loved.
Meatloaf Recipe With Rotel

I have a delicious comfort food recipe for you: my mama’s Meatloaf Recipe With Rotel! Before we get to the recipe, I want to tell you about a campaign I’m working with: Child Hunger Ends Here. Or at least it can if we all work together. I’ve talked a little bout the Child Hunger Ends Here program before but I want to touch base with you again with some new dates. (below)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored cause related post on behalf of The Motherhood, ConAgra Foods, Kroger and P&G. Although it is sponsored, all opinions are my own.


More than one in five children, including more than one in four Latino children, in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.

MORE than ONE in FIVE! These children are the future of the United States and they deserve better. Just because a family may not be able to provide enough food, be it from lay offs, illness or whatever, doesn’t mean that the children have to suffer. You know the saying “It take a village to raise a child”? Well that saying comes from somewhere. We are a nation that is built to take care of one another. If the children of our future are suffering, guess what? We’re all suffering.

It’s not too difficult to reach out and make sure everyone has enough food on their table. Actually, it’s REALLY easy. And all you have to do is shop for your own regular products. ConAgra, Kroger and P&G do the rest.


Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn.

At ConAgra Foods, they find this unacceptable. That’s why they are partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. 7 MILLION! I think that’s awesome.

As I mentioned up above, it’s easy for us to make a difference:

You can see in the table above that one of the products with a code is Rotel. We use a ton of Rotel here in our house. Clay uses it in his famous chili. I use it in meatloaf, goulash and anything that calls for diced tomatoes. I’m going to share my mama’s beloved meatloaf recipe with you below. I’d love for you to try it and tell me what you think! Her’s is a meatloaf recipe with oatmeal versus crackers that many use. It is also a meatloaf recipe with Rotel in place of canned tomatoes. And lemme tell you, it is delicious! You may end up with a little heartburn but your tummy will be full and happy! 😂
