This was a delicious meatloaf. For me, the 90% lean ground beef was perhaps a little too "prime" and the texture was somewhat dry. That made the salsa/sour cream sauce very key. For the meatloaf, I used crushed tortilla chips in place of the oats. I also used about 1/4 c. fresh parsley, and added salt, pepper and an egg. For the sour cream sauce, I found that 2 T. made it plenty rich and creamy. (I think 6 T. would be way too much). My salsa was very chunky so I whirled it in the mini-food-processor. We all enjoyed a southwest twist to meatloaf. I served it with cornbread, salad and rice. I just free-formed it in a baking dish (didn't use a loaf pan). It browned nicely and tasted wonderful with the sauce!
