Beefy Sloppy Joe Meatloaf

I'm not over last winter yet but,
with the weather now turning colder.
I put this spicy meatloaf together
and warmed things up at the dinner table.
This is not sweet like that canned sloppy
stuff and has a good amount of hot spice.
You can adjust the heat to your taste.

1 onion, minced
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green pepper, minced
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 cup dried bread crumbs
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 pound ground beef, 80/20
1/2 pound ground pork
1 packet sloppy joe mix
1/2 teaspoon cayanne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
tomato ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together in a bowl the onion, garlic,
green pepper, tomato paste, bread crumbs, and egg.
Add the spice mix, ground peppers and combine well.
Mix in the ground beef and pork and put into
a meatloaf baking pan or shape in a glass baking dish.
Cover the top with tomato ketchup if desired.
Bake for 60 minutes or until done.
Allow to rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
