Southwest-Style Meatloaf (Turkey, Chicken or Beef)

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Just Call Me Martha

Although the recipe calls for Ground Turkey or Chicken, this is sure to be good with ground beef as well. From the London Free Press.

The flavour was quite good, if a little salty. But the texture left a lot to be desired. My husband described it as "cat food pate." I think it would be much better with ground beef, or a mixture of ground beef, pork and veal, rather than with ground chicken.
