WHAT IS A MEATLOAF?
According to Wikipedia, a meatloaf is a dish of ground beef (or chicken, lamb, pork, turkey, seafood, veal) combined with seasonings and other ingredients.
It’s shaped like a loaf before baking.
Vegetarians use imitation meat and their favorite seasonings.
There are a variety of creative toppings. Favorites include ketchup, barbecue sauce, hot sauce and melted cheese.
My adjusted recipe has an additional 1/2 cup of crumbled tortilla chips plus shredded pepper jack cheese. Both ingredients are binders that hold the meatloaf together.
Taco Meatloaf is seasoned with taco seasoning. Use original, mild, medium or hot.
I used original.
SERVE TACO MEATLOAF FOR LUNCH OR DINNER
