Taco Meat Loaf ~ What’s for Dinner Thursday!

I love Sandra Lee!  Her cook books are my absolute favorite and so are her ideas/recipes.
This recipes comes from one of the cook books that I have from her.  It’s yummy, easy and a different take on meat loaf. This is definitely not your moms meat loaf! *smiles*

I love just making meat with taco seasoning and eating it in a bowl, so this should really strike my fancy!
