We live in Texas and love the Southwest style of cooking. This recipe spices up plain ol’ meat loaf so it tastes like a filling for tacos.—Susan Garoutte, Georgetown, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 6, 2011

I've made this several times now. We love the flavor. However, we find it crumbles easily instead of holding together in nice slices. So, I usually will serve this with Mexican rice, tortilla chips, salsa, lettuce, etc. and we eat it as nachos. I love that I have an extra to freeze, as well.
