Hi I'm Shea, and I’m a polished Southern belle. I adore food, and cooking is my therapy. There’s just about nothing I wouldn’t put a jalapeno on.

Author's Notes

If you have fresh onions and bell peppers on hand, those will work, of course. Just dice one of each.

Any crackers or plain flavored chips will work in place of Doritos.

Restaurant style salsa has a thinner consistency, and makes for an easier topping.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

step 4
Form into four evenly sized meatloaves, placing on a sheet pan or baking stone.
step 5
Top each with salsa, add to oven and set timer for 20 minutes.
step 6
Drain potatoes and add to bowl of a stand mixer, along with Cream Cheese (1/2 cup), Salted Butter (1/4 cup), and Mayonnaise (2 Tbsp).
step 7
Stir on low until combined and potatoes are mashed. Taste and adjust Sea Salt (1 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1 tsp).
