Hmm. Taco meatloaf? Now this is one way I have never thought to use taco spices. Could you add some taco seasoning to the meat to get more of a taco flavor? I bet this would be super great with some black olives and tomatoes as a garnish too. I know most of my family loves black olives and eats them with tacos, so why not?

This recipe is a variation of traditional meatloaf. It has the flavors of Mexican food. For a healthier version of this recipe, I would use lean ground beef or ground turkey, and reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. Out of personal preference, I would use the mild Pace picante sauce.
