1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
1 cup frozen corn
2 pounds ground beef (90 percent lean)
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 large egg
1 cup plain yogurt (not nonfat)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons ketchup, optional


1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty foil.

2. Warm oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in corn; sauté 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl to let cool slightly.

3. Add beef, bread crumbs, egg, yogurt, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper to bowl. Mix gently until well combined; do not overmix. Transfer to baking sheet and shape into a 12-by-4-inch loaf.

4. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 160ºF, about 1 hour. Spread with ketchup, if desired, and let stand 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
