Mexican Style Meatloaf
We love to do meatloaf at home and many times we like to mix it up a bit. For example, we will do an Italian Style Meatloaf, Mexican Style Meatloaf, a Twist on the Traditional Meatloaf, A Curry Indian Style Meatloaf. You just never know what’s going to pop up in our meatloaf!
This Mexican-style meatloaf was inspired by a recipe I found on allrecipes.com and my husband’s famous meatloaf, added with a bit of my own influence and flavors – The suggested ingredients are from our kitchen, our pantry and freshly grown items from the garden!
Be sure to have fresh salsa on the side and some homemade guacamole too! My hubby loves to add a bit or a lot of habanero sauce. Perhaps, also add a side or two of black beans and Mexican style corn on the cob with Cotija Cheese.
To top it all off indulge in your favorite Margarita or Cerveza!
