      Very tasty! I don't like ketchup on my meatloaf, but liked the chili sauce, and will use that from now on. I took the chef%u2019s suggestion of doing this as a regular meatloaf instead of burgers. Always on the look out for new meatloaf variations, and this is a keeper.

      This is a super tasty recipe! I do think I will reduce the amount of chili sauce in the mix just a little bit next time as they didn't hold together very well after cooking (maybe 1/3 instead of 1/2 cup?). Otherwise, I loved them! I was concerned the cook time wouldn't be long enough but I did 10 minutes after adding the extra sauce on top and it was perfect. Instead of tortillas and jalapenos, I served with Refried Pinto Beans on the side. Thanks for sharing!
