I am not rating because of the changes I made -- but in my humble opinion there is not enough meat in this to make 2 full 9x5 loaf pans to feed 6 each! I added 3 more pounds and it was a good ratio with the veggies for our taste. I used my mini-muffin pans (48 total) and got 2 other 5-3/4x3 loaf pans. We will make again... I substituted black beans for the kidney since using mini-muffin pans. Enjoy!

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.

I love anything Mexican so this was AWESOME! I don't care for olives or corn so I didn't add them in. Added more salsa on top and sour cream with a baked potato on the side and it was the best meal!

You can make it quicker by making mini meatloafs in muffin tins. Cooks really quickly (done in like 30 min).

This is an absolute keeper! My teenage sons love it and my husband never wants "regular" meatloaf again.

I serve mashed potatoes and green beans with it..not very Mexican, but seems like something green should be on the plate!!
