Sooooooo Good!!!! And easy to prepare. I didn't use the refried beans, DH not crazy about that. Also used 1/2 pepperjack and 1/2 cheddar for a little extra kick! Also put a handful of Dorito's on top. Yum!!!!

My family loved this. It was such a nice change from the usual meatloaf and easy too! I had some roma tomatoes I needed to use up so I chopped up and threw them in the meat mixture. I also added olive slices between the meat and beans and over the top of the cheese. Will be making this again for sure!

This was great!! I learned a very important lesson...either use a giant loaf pan or put the loaf pan on a cookie sheet before cutting!! My loaf pan was filled to the rim with all the goodies, but I had forgotten that the meat had shrunk, so when I went to cut it-it slid back and forth a bit in the pan, slopping salsa and stuff all over my counter!! Oh well! Live and learn. Despite my messy kitchen we completely enjoyed this and I'm not a meatloaf kind of girl!! I served it with quessadilla's just like you suggested...What a great dinner!
