Low Carb Mexican Meatloaf

Now I have not made meatloaf in years and I was really doubtful about whether or not I could pull it off using Yves Just Like Ground Round but, lo and behold, it worked!

I suppose my husband might enjoy REAL meatloaf made with ground beef…perhaps I will give it a go sometime in the future though I must admit out of all the meats there are to cook? Ground beef is my least favourite to cook!

Where did I get the recipe? I googled Low Carb Mexican Meatloaf and one of the top hits was http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1221493. Of course there would be substitutions and no, I didn’t exactly follow the recipe but I was happy with the results.
