"My family kept turning up their noses at my meatloaf. I tried several recipes in hopes of finding one that they would all like. They told it was just too darn plain for their taste. I tried adding oatmeal or rice instead of dry bread crumbs, adding different kinds of veggies, I used canned tomatoes, or ketchup, or tomato paste, or different styles of tomato sauce, even different spices until I came up with this one. When I saw all plates clean and being asked for more, I knew I had found the one they liked and the keeper for our family."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was a nice twist on meatloaf, even my picky husband enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
very tasty meatloaf. used regular tomato sauce and added some chili powder. skipped the chopped green chiles, only because i didnt have any. and also used pork, veal, and beef mixture as opposed to just ground beef.
simple dish-great for the weekday meal. Perfect as " a little something different".
This meatloaf was delicious although I did have a couple small changes to it. I used garlic and onion tomato sauce since my grocery store did not have the Mexican tomato sauce. I added about 8 shakes of Tabasco sauce for the missing heat. I also used 1 teaspoon garlic powder, half teaspoon oregano, half teaspoon basil and half teaspoon parsley since I don't have the Mrs.Dash. I also only used 11/2lbs ground turkey because that was the amount I had frozen. This was the first meatloaf that I loved and didn't smother in ketchup!
I've been making this meatloaf for a while and can't believe I haven't rated it before now. It is really good. The hot sauce in the can is important as we've tried it with regular sales as well and not as good. Uses a few things that we don't normally keep on hand but worth the effort.
My boyfriend said it was better than his mothers!!!!! What a compliment!!!! And all 4 of my children loved it too!!!
Worked with medium red taco sauce- didn't have the hot tomato sauce
Made this tonight and it was spectacular as written. Not bland as some meatloaf recipes but rather a nice spice flavor. I couldn't find "Mexican-style hot tomato sauce" at my grocery store so used Pace picante sauce.
