A new twist to the classic favorite, this easy meatloaf is tasty and fun!

"Awesome twist on traditional meat loaf! I will make this over and over, the American cheese makes it delicious. I made Mac and cheese as a side but would be great with traditional Mexican sides. I also made this in a pie pan to serve it in wedges and ensure even cooking therefore I did not put salsa on the middle I only poured it on the top and worked great."

The prep went smoothly, but the taco meatloaf turned out way too greasy. It might have been the type of ground beef I used. I also used shredded mexican-style cheese instead of American cheese slices. The overall taste was good but had an ugly appearance with all the greasy.
