This has a mild Mexican flavor and tastes good with all the fixings. I like olives, but they overwhelmed the flavor a bit. It just isn't my favorite Mexican style recipe, I'd rather taco meat in a tortilla with all the fixings or homemade quesadillas. Won't be making it again, just personal preference.
Great flavor! What a nice change of pace from the usual. I'll be making it again; however, I will leave out the mushrooms. I use them often but in this recipe they tasted rubbery. I was pressed for time; so I made it in the microwave covered with waxed paper and it came out very moist. Who would have thought, a Mexican Meat Loaf?
This meatloaf wasn't very good. It was kind of bland and cooking for an hour and a half, uncovered, dried it out way too much. I probably will not make this again.
My husband and I throughly enjoyed this meatloaf. Great, mexican flavor. Whips up easy and cooks nicely. Will definitely be making again.
Excellent flavor. Will definitely make this again. A nice change from regular ol' meatloaf.
