Mexican Meat Loaf

Dave Smith


I made this recipe and it instantly became a family favorite! I can relate the flavors and taste to home made enchiladas.

Always looking for ways to create new Meat Loaf recipe I came across substituted chopped corn tortillas and then made a few other ingredient changes to give it more Mexican flavor. I suggests topping the meat loaf with sour cream and salsa.
Pat gave me a few suggestion so yesterday 6/14 I update it Thanks pat it was an even bigger hit
