Spicy meatloaf full of heat, cheese, beans, olives, cilantro and yumminess! Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce topped with cheese, sour cream, olives and salsa. Oh and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro or fresh parsley.

We really enjoyed this meatloaf. It has a grocery list of ingredients, but it adds up to something very tasty. I tried it as written, on a bed of lettuce--reminiscent of a taco--but next time I think I will serve it with my Recipe #17126 for a more traditional meal.
