    1                    garlic clove -- minced
      1/4  teaspoon      garlic powder
    4      ounces        green chiles -- minced

      1/2  teaspoon      Worcestershire sauce
    1                    green pepper
 
 * Use prepared stuffing mix in box.
 
      Combine the ground meat, pork, and sausage in large bowl. Mix in the=
  stuffing mix (which has been crushed slightly), onions, chiles, beaten egg,=
  chili powder, garlic and garlic powder. Pour in half the tomato sauce and=
  mix very well with your hands. (Wear plastic baggies on hands.)
      Slice the green bell peppers into very thin slivers. Grease a cookie=
  sheet with at least 2-inch sides. Place the green peppers onto the sheet.
      Press the meat mixture into a loaf dish and then turn out on top of the=
  slivered green peppers, tucking under any peppers slices that are not under=
  the meat.
      Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Drain=
  off any fat from dish. An easy way is to absorb the fat with paper towels.=
  Pour the remaining tomato sauce, which has been blended with the nutmeg and=
  Worcestershire sauce, over the top of the meatloaf.
      Continue baking for 5-10 minutes longer. Let stand 15 minutes before=
  slicing.
