Grandmommy's Mexicali Meatloaf

Recipe by Julia Lynn

After my boyfriends grandmother passed, I was given her recipe book to take down some that looked good to me. This one is a winner. ** Update 3/7- I just made this for the first time myself and realized that in the recipe it calls for milk but it is not listed in the ingredients. I guess I did not record this when copying the recipe so I used about 2 cups to get it creamy like it should be.. however.. I ended up with too much sauce. I used it over chicken later in the week.
