One of the best meatloaf recipes I have made. I did add some taco seasoning plus more onion. I can't wait to have it on a sandwich! This is a keeper!
I liked the flavors of this dish, it was mildly spicy and flavorful a nice twist on your typical meatloaf. I added 1/4 cup of finely diced green peppers and some extra chili powder. You could further ramp this up with some cumin or as the other poster did - cilantro. The salsa was also a nice change from ketchup or tomato sauce as the condiment. I did have some problems with the texture of the dish which struck me as spongy. My guess that was a result of the milk, an ingredient I've never added to meatloaf before. Should I make this again, I would leave it out. Notice your recipe for mini meatloaves and decided that was too clever to miss and made these in that fasion. Thanks LT.
This was a delicious meatloaf! Juicy and tender, but maintained its shape. I followed the directions, but added a few things to it. We added diced jalapeno (seeds removed) and fresh chopped cilantro. Only used half the jar of picante as 8 oz covered the loaf sufficiently. We also baked it for another 5 mins with the sauce on it. Great served with mexican rice and chips w/ salsa! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
