Chili Cheese Taco Meatloaf

     One of the most versatile dishes is meatloaf. It can be made in a variety of ways with different ingredients. It just depends on what's in stock. A few weeks ago we tried adding some diced peppers for flavor, seasoned the meat with taco seasoning and for a new twist used chili cheese Fritos instead of bread or crackers for texture. What a success!
    This was very easy to make using common ingredients and baked in the oven while I did household chores. The chili cheese corn chips added a nice subtle flavor that made the dish unique. This is well worth a try and will be a repeat at our house.
