Except for the chile peppers in the tomatoes, I don't see how this recipe constituted Tex Mex without the seasonings so I added cumin and chili powder to the mix. I normally use bread crumbs in my meatloaf, however, in this case I used finely crushed tortilla chips. I made an enchilada sauce for the top of the loaf and instead of American cheese, I shredded cheddar cheese and used it as a filling rather than on top. With these few changes, it turned out really well.



My husband and 2 year old son loved this. I did too. I changed a couple things. I added diced onion and instead of onion powder I used taco seasoning. I also used garlic salt instead of regular salt. And I too, drained the tomatoes. I will be adding this to my favorites.



I've never met a meatloaf I didn't like. This one is very good, although I needed to add a little more bread to thicken the consistency. I'll make it again.
