Another tasty recipe from Super Food Ideas. A nice change from regular meatloaf, and using different heat levels of salsa this can be as mild or as spicy as you wish.

A delicious, moist meatloaf. Made it without the pork though. Go ahead and add some jalapeno's if you are looking for some extra heat. Sour cream and salsa on the side. Will be making again.

I couldn't believe the mouth watering aroma from this meatloaf while it was cooking. I used medium salsa but will use hot next time even with the medium it had great flavor. Instead of 2 slices of bread I used 1 cup of Panko crumbs. Served with a BBQ'd potato, fresh green beans & new carrots Mmmmm. Seved with extra salsa on the side

This was quick and easy to make but for some reason it was quite dry (maybe my meat was too low fat?). I think a cup of grated cheese in the mix would have fixed that, and I wish I'd used a hot salsa rather than a mild roasted cpsicum one. I would make it again with the changes I just mentioned.
