  • 12 ounces shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 12 teaspoon pepper

This meatloaf was easy to make. Since I've never made meatloaf in the crockpot I was glad to see that it worked well. But for my family, I think we'll stick to a more traditional meatloaf recipie.

This was delicious! I made it with low fat mexican cheese blend cheese. Trader Joes sells frozen roasted corn which was a wonderful accompaniement with mashed potatoes. This is a keeper.

i have the same cookbook and have made the meatloaf several times. i leave a tortilla out overnight and make crumbs from it instead of using bread crumbs. i also substitute low sodium taco seasoning and low fat mexican blend cheese.
