Recipe by JULIE COWEN
"This jelly-roll approach to making meatloaf is really easy and tasty, especially when filled with your favorite cheese and sauces. This Mexican variety includes refried beans and tortillas to make it somewhat of a meatloaf burrito!"

Daughter Ashley is giving this a five because she said it was the best meatloaf I ever made! The girls and I are mexican food freaks, so I'd have to agree with her. (Mick, you've gotta try this) It was a little hard to roll but it could have been because I always use ground turkey instead of beef for my meatloaf and it tends to be a bit softer. Anyway, we absolutely loved this recipe Julie and I'll certainly make this again and again!!!!
I'm sorry to be the downer here, but we didn't like this recipe at all. I think maybe I mixed the meat mixture too much but it was hard to handle raw and very tough after it was cooked. The inside part ended up being a little too mushy. We ended up throwing it away. Thanks anyway.
After trying this recipe I couldn't believe it wasn't rated and put in the hall of fame for the best meatloaf! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect. This is now my family's favorite! Thank you!
This is a great recipe. I add some salsa to the refried beans as well as cheese as I am heating it. To make the rolling easier I lay this out on wax paper then pull the edges up and use a spatula if needed to roll it.
My husband and I both liked the taste of this, but I think the procedure needs tweaking. I found the layers slid as I tried to roll it, and it didn't turn out very pretty. I had the foresight to put the foil wrapped roll into a loaf pan, and it's a good thing I did since the foil leaked a lot of liquid. I will make this again, but layer the meat, then beans, tortillas, cheese and the remainder of the meat in a loaf pan, top it with the salsa, and bake it for an hour. Oh, and I only used half the beans in the meatloaf and served the rest on the side.
This was good but if using salsa, use a thicker type or drain some of the liquid. I also spread chipotle pepper paste on top for more spice.
Hands down, the BEST meatloaf recipe out there. This will please even the meatloaf haters! The only downside to this recipe is that it is a little difficult to roll, otherwise, dynamite! Keep em coming!
My daughter loves this recipe, and she's picky! We use the hard taco shells or nachos inside the meatloaf because that's what she likes, and it turns out really good. Tried it with jalapeno's, olives and some hot sauce and just as yummy!
