The first thing I did was place gluten free soda crackers inside a large Ziploc bag and then I used a rolling pin to crush the crackers into fine crumbs until I had 1 cup.

Next I put some lean ground beef, large eggs, onion, salsa verde, pepper, salt and the crushed crackers into a large mixing bowl.

I mixed all the ingredients together well.

I used four small loaf pans.  Two pans were Instant Pot Brand and the other two were from a kit from Amazon.

Next I firmly pressed the meat mixture into each of the four loaf pans.

Then I arranged the pans on one of the racks from my Deluxe Air Fryer and placed it on the bottom rung.

I used the Custom Setting to set the Air Fryer to 375F for 20 minutes.

While the meatloaf was cooking I prepared the sauce by combining some salsa verde with some bbq sauce.

After the meatloaf had cooked for 20 minutes I removed the tray from the Air Fryer. 

Then I spooned half of the sauce over the tops.

Next I returned the tray to the Air Fryer and again used the custom setting at 375F for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes I removed the tray and transferred the two smaller pans to a hot pad and returned the two larger pans (Instant Pot brand) to the Air Fryer on Custom Setting 375F for 8 more minutes.

I removed the smaller loaves from the pans while the other two pans finished cooking.

Then I sliced the meatloaf and served it up with some of our favourite sides.

Have the reserved sauce on hand for those who want to top off their serving. 

Enjoy Air Fryer Meatloaf Salsa Verde with its little bit of heat in every bite!
