"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"
