"I made half this recipe and it is really good. I baked it in the convection oven at 325 dergrees for about 50 minutes, 45 would be perfect. I served with all the toppings and that made it! I served a side of refried beans which was perfect, maybe some spanish rice or corn next time........."

"This was a huge twist to Taco Tuesday at our home! My father is not a fan of tacos, but loves meatloaf, so when I made this he enjoyed it so much he asked for seconds! Very creative! The only thing I did different was to add a chopped onion to the mix. Will definitely fix this more often!"

"I liked it very much. My husband felt it could be more moist. I uses 90% lean hamburger. Maybe I should get hamburger with a little more fat next time. It has a wonderful flavor"

"This was a big hit with my family. And a big hit with me on a busy day when the temp was in the 90's I like the topping so much I used it again on Mexican rice. YUM! Thank you."
