To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

Form the Meatloaf
Crush saltine crackers until smaller than pea-size pieces.
Thoroughly combine ground beef, crushed crackers, chipotle mayonnaise, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a mixing bowl.
Form ground beef mixture into two equally-sized ovals.
Bake the Meatloaf
Place meatloaves on prepared baking sheet. Top with cheese and bacon, pressing gently to adhere.
Bake in hot oven until loaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 20-25 minutes.
While loaves bake, cook green beans.
Cook the Green Beans
Trim ends off green beans.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add green beans and ¼ cup water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, cover and stir occasionally until water is evaporated, 5-7 minutes.
If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes
Remove from burner. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.
While green beans cook, make ranch sauce.
Make the Ranch Sauce
In another mixing bowl, thoroughly combine sour cream, 1 Tbsp. water, and buttermilk dill seasoning. Set aside.
