My Family called this the "Best Meatloaf Ever!!!". It's really good especially with the Spruced Up Mashed Potatoes(provided by another contributor). If you can find a restaurant near you that makes frsh salsa every day, or you like to make your own salsa, that will make the meatloaf even better! Highest recommendation.

I thought it was good and smelled awesome cooking. I did everyone the same. The only problem I had was it wouldn't cook, I probably cooked it for a half hour more. I think next time I would cook it at 375 instead of 350. It just was so pink and mushy. It got really frustrating since my sides were already done.

When I try recipes, I always ask my husband what he thinks--he is a real picky eater!! He really liked this, especially because it is not mushy when cooked up. It has substance to it. I also liked it but did cook it a few minutes longer. I was also darker in color than the picture. Good recipe!!

This turned out really good. My oldest daughter swears that meatloaf is awful but she actually liked this kind. It was very moist and flavorful. Just waiting on how it re-heats for my fiancee. But I will use this again!! (I did add a little more garlic, minced onion and italian seasoning. I used ground beef and cooked it at 375 for about 45 min.)

Very tasty, but I would add about a 1/4 (or more) salsa next time. Perhaps some jalapeños or chilies, too.

Easy and yummy. The salsa makes it moist and spicy. I substitute ½ cup of parmesan cheese for the cheddar cheese. It gives it a smokier flavor. My husband, who has never liked my previous meatloaves, gobbles this one up.

I followed the suggestion to add a glaze partway thru and to up the temp to 375 halfway. It was great! I used ground turkey and added nopales. Yum.

It was very moist and a lot of flavor!! Cooked for 35 mins only because I used lean ground beef.
