I made this for dinner last night & it was really good. I thought that 1 1/2 cups of salsa seemed like a lot, but it's not. Also, even using the medium salsa, it was not too spicy. It's a great way to use up stale saltines, too. I found that a cup of crushed saltines is about half of a sleeve of crackers. My husband poured extra salsa on top. Very easy. I will make this again & may even add a can of chopped chiles.



Followed the recipe the first time I made this. I didn't care for the salsa in the meatloaf. The next time I made it with Rotel tomatoes, and added onion and 2 teaspoons of chili powder, also added a little garlic salt. This gave the meatloaf more flavor. I also add more cheese.



This is a great recipe. It's easy and a real crowd pleaser. I have since been asked for this recipe from my sister, my mom, and even my grandmother. It's that good. I sprinkled cheese and poured a strip of salsa along the top 10 minutes left in the cooking time to make it look even better.
