Cheesy Salsa Mini Meatloaves

I don't make meatloaf that often but when I do I like to mix it up and break away from the everyday traditional meatloaf. I've never been crazy about the kind that is slathered with ketchup. These Cheesy Salsa Mini Meatloaves are packed with flavor and are so simple to prepare. They are great made with ground turkey and ground chicken too! Give them a try for yourself!

  1. This sounds really good, I've never thought about salsa in meatloaf, what a great idea. I normally top my meatloaf with mashed potatoes and golden mushroom soup.

    1. Thanks, Brittany! The potato topped meatloaf sounds great too!
