Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat olive oil in a heavy 10″ skillet over medium heat. Add onion, celery, green pepper and garlic and cook uncovered for 5-6 minutes, stirring constantly, until tender. Add salt, peppers, cumin, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce. Remove from heat and let cool 15 minutes.
Stir in milk, ketchup, eggs, and bread crumbs and mix well. Add ground beef and pork and mix gently, just until combined. Place meatloaf mixture into a greased, 9″x5″ loaf pan, patting gently.
Bake meatloaf, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until it is dark brown and pulls away from the sides of pan. Interior temperature should be 160 degrees. Carefully drain fat from pan. Cover meatloaf and let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Serves 6-8
