Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Combine the first 7 ingredients together. Mix well.
Add ground beef, and mix well.
In a 9x13 inch baking pan, shape meat into a loaf about 1" high x 8" long x 6" wide.
Top with the 6 tablespoons Mexican cheese down the middle of the loaf.
Bring up both sides of the meatloaf to cover the cheese, and then press down to cover cheese. Carefully reshape into a loaf again.
Put in the oven, and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine ketchup, reserved 2 tablespoons jalepanos, reserved onions, and garlic powder in a small plastic dish.
Put in microwave on high heat for 2 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.
Spoon sauce over cooked loaves, and sprinkle with the 3/4 cup cheese.
Put pan back into the oven, and cook about 15 more minutes, or until cheese is melted down the sides of the meatloaf.
When done, take out of oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then slice into 2" slices, and serve.
