Reviews for Mexican Meat Loaf
"I added 1 cup of shredded cheese mixed in for added taste and texture. It did take longer than the original recipe. And added picante on top before cooking. Next time will cook at 375."
"I followed the recipe exactly as written. We found the texture to me mushy compared to a traditional meat loaf and a traditional meat loaf is more flavorful in our opinion."
"I used ground turkey and crushed tortilla chips instead of the bread crumbs and omitted the salt & pepper.Taco seasoning replaced the chili powder and I added a can of mild green chiles as well."
"My family loves this meatloaf recipe! Thank you for sharing!"
"This is very simple and tasty. It took a little longer to bake than the recipe indicated, but overall this is a very good recipe."
