My kids (and us, too!) LOVE Taco Tuesday! We really just plain love Mexican food in general. Two weeks ago on Tuesday, we had tacos, this past Tuesday I mixed it up and tried out this Taco Meatloaf.
It was bizarre how it had all of the flavors of a taco, but yet cutting into a meatloaf.
It was super-duper easy to make, and you could totally do it ahead and bake it later on or the next day even. Served up with all of the fixings for tacos, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, black olives and avocado (if you have it, we didn’t — **insert sad face here**)
So, next time Taco Tuesday rolls around (like tomorrow??) How about mixing things up in the kitchen and making some MEXICAN MEATLOAF!! Be sure and let me know what you thought if you try it!! Love to hear your comments and feedback.
