"Meat Lumps"

This unfortunate name comes from my little sister who took one look at the tray coming out of the oven and asked, "What are those meat lumps?"  The real name is something like Mexican Miniature Meatloaves.  Though it has an unappetizing name, it is actually really good!

1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground turkey or pork
2 eggs
3 big handfuls of gluten-free tortilla chips
1 can of diced green chiles (4 oz.)
1/2 cup onion
1/4 cup canned or 1 small homemade roasted red bell pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Put the chips in a food processor and grind them up until small.  You should wind up with somewhere around one cup of these crumbs.  Beat the eggs in a separate bowl.  Dice the onion and bell pepper.

In a big bowl, mix everything together well.  Shape into four little meatloaves on a greased baking dish.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Make sure they are done (meat thermometer should read 155 degrees.)  Remove from oven and let rest for five minutes before serving.
