"Had this for dinner tonight and we really enjoyed it. Changes I made were, decreased the milk to 1/2 cup,& added some pepper jack cheese on top when it was done and put in the oven just long enough to melt."

"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."
