I want to make this immediately -- the recipe looks perfect for my tastes and I looove meatloaf!

Ok, so the concept of a taco meatloaf sounds pretty appealing to me but ketchup with tacos does not...and is it just me or does everyone seem to think corn goes inside Mexican meals? Being Spanish myself I don't remember ever having corn inside my dishes unless it was cornbread, and as much as I've tried liking meatloaf with ketchup...I'm sorry but it just ruins the integrity of the meatloaf in my eyes. I agree using salsa would go nicely with this and a side of Spanish rice would compliment it well also.

I really want to try this recipe since I enjoy meatloaf and Mexican food and the combination of both sounds quite appealing to me. I'm not a great fan of ketchup on meatloaf, though I love the idea of using a good hot sauce (like Texas Pete's Sabor!) on it. I find most ketchup way too sweet and I'm thinking a good tomato paste mixed with the hot sauce might be more to my liking.

I have yet to understand how you can rate a dish by the looks. This recipe sounds good but the picture is very unappetizing. I check the reviews for people who have tried the recipe for likes and dislikes. The one star is because you cannot submit without a rating.

Meatloaf in our house is typically referred to as "dump meatloaf". We open the fridge, and dump things in the bowl. We've done several stuffed versions, a taco one, bacon wrapped. But never thought to add corn. Great idea especially when you're out of eggs. Love the idea of hot sauce on top, but how does it go with the ketchup? Or the ketchup with the tex-mex?

I never would have thought that meatloaf and tacos would be a good combination, but I am going to have to try this one because it sounds so yummy with all the tasty ingredients. How long would you cook it for double the recipe? Would you just double the time? Thanks so much!

I haven't made meatloaf in a long time, and this looks like a delicious alternative to the usual ketchup or french onion soup mix meatloaf recipes! My family loves anything tex-mex, so the peppers and hot sauce will make this a nice spicy meatloaf that they will enjoy! Since this takes almost an hour to cook, I would probably serve this for a weekend dinner, or make it ahead for meatloaf sandwiches! A very tasty meatloaf recipe that I can't wait to try!
