This recipe came to be after purchasing some ‘Canadian Heat’ at the Pepper Palace on our trip to Niagara Falls. I had been wondering what I was going to make besides the skillet steak and my husband suggested I make some meatloaf since I had not made any in a while. He was half kidding but I thought he may be onto something. I had never made a hot sauce meatloaf before so why not give it a shot.
The result of that was Melt-Your-Face-Off Meatloaf.
I tried REALLY hard to make the meatloaf pretty but speaking from past experiences there isn’t a whole lot you can do to make meatloaf pretty. It just isn’t a very pretty food. And the original name I had for this recipe wasn’t very pretty either.
I wasn’t really sure what type of meatloaf I should make but I was pretty sure I was going to want to add some breadcrumbs to soak up a little of the hotness but not too much otherwise too much of the flavor would get cooked up. Then I had to consider the fact if it was too spicy I would not eat it. As for my husband the heat level doesn’t matter as long as there is good flavor so that was another thing I had to keep in mind.
I started adding. Mixing. Baking.
When I pulled the meatloaf out of the oven and took a sniff I was unsure whether I had created a masterpiece or a disaster.
Honestly, by looking at it I thought it was a disaster.
I carefully cut and plates. Snapped a few photos and sat down to eat as I thought of a name for my recipe.
Husband kept eating. And eating. Went back for more.
I took a bite. The heat melted my face off. I think I choked back a few tears. A 100 packet of Wholly Guacamole saved me.
So, Melt-Your-Face-Off Meatloaf was born.
Let’s just say their wasn’t much meatloaf left in the pan by the time I went to bed that night.

This one sounds like one hot baby! Hot things are not my forte, but the hubster likes it. I will pin it! Thanks for dropping by my site and leaving a comment. If you’ve not “liked” me on FB, please do that- I am ALMOST to 100! Thanks, Deb
Thank you for stopping by. It sure was on hot baby. I like things hot. This one was almost too hot for me. I had to add some guacamole to cool it down just a tad. Got you on Facebook and Twitter!
I love meatloaf! This one looks so good.
Let me know how you like it if you give it a try!
Laura @ The Rookie Cook says
Sounds delicious – although I would have to majorly scale down the spice. I’m not a big fan of spice 🙂 However, I’m sure it would still be good with all the other flavors going on.
It can easily be adapted. My husband loves it spicy. Hotter the better. For me, the heat has to have flavor. All heat and no flavor sucks. This had good flavor but it was too hot for me. Thank goodness for guacamole!

Weird that you mentioned Niagara Falls today. Hubby and I were just talking about taking a trip out there. We’ve both been there, just not together. Oh, and your meatloaf sounds kickass.
Betsy Mitchell says
Meatloaf is one food that I just can’t get into. Maybe i just haven’t found a recipe that is THAT good. I will give yours a try, it sounds like it might be a winner!
Liz Mays says
Meatloaf is an ultimate comfort food for me. I’ll pretty much eat it anytime and your recipe looks crazy good!
I have the same problem when I’m photographing chicken casserole. It may taste delicious, but it’s so hard to make it look pretty! Some foods just aren’t very photogenic.
My husband loves a great meatloaf. We try to make two at one time and freeze one (because it takes so long to make in the first place.) Your recipe looks yummy!
Catherine S says
Thanks for the great recipe. I will have to make this for my husband he will love it. He loves meatloaf and spicy so this is perfect.
Ohhhhh I’m going to try this tonight! I was going to make meatloaf but this? Looks amazing!
Tiffany (A Mom's Take) says
That does look like some good meatloaf. When I make mine I always hide in 2 or 3 hardboiled, peeled eggs. The family loves them. It’s like a treasure hunt to find them when we sit down for dinner.
Ann Bacciaglia says
This looks delicious. I love spicy food so this would be perfect for me. I will have to trey this recipe this weekend.
Melissa @ This Girl's Life Blog says
Haha! Sounds like it is way to hot for me. It looks yummy though.
The title of this post made me laugh! This meatloaf looks SO GOOD!
Love the name of the dish! Hope it comes with a warning label!

I have never really liked meat loaf, but this one looks so good. I know my husband would love it.
We love meatloaf, but I’ve never tried a hot version. I bet my hubby would just love this recipe!
Camesha | Mama Motivator says
Yes, that would melt my face off!!! My husband would love this! He’s the spicy food eater in our house.
I laughed at the title. My husband makes two things here…lasagna and meatloaf. That’s it. He does a great job w/both, everyone raves about them. 🙂
Amber C. says
I think my husband would LOVE this meatloaf! I can’t wait to make it for him this weekend!
I would totally try this. I agree meatloaf isn’t the most visually appealing thing but luckily it tastes good. 🙂 Mine has been a little off lately so I’ve turned the extra into ground meat for chili. It’s worked out wonderfully.
April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition says
I make a version of spicy meatloaf that my husband likes. I prefer regular meatloaf so we switch off.
Carly Anderson says
Mmm, I love meat loaf! I love that you put the hot and spicy ketchup in this! Can’t wait to try this one out.
This sounds super spicy! I have one daughter who will eat hot sauce plain and my other 3 kids avoid anything even remotely spicy! 🙂 It’s hard pleasing everyone around here, but I bet my one daughter and my hubby would LOVE that meatloaf!
