Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family loved this meat loaf and they want me to make it again. My family loved this meat loaf and they want me to make it again. And I will because I thought this meat loaf was great and I don't like meat loaf at all and neither does my brother-in-law and he said it was the best he's had in a long time and he doesn't care for meat loaf either abd he ate it like it was going out of style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best meatloaf I have ever made. The best meatloaf I have ever made. Was so rich and creamy (from the velveta cheese) and just a little on the spicy side. I will add a little more chili powder next time and 1/4 cup of chopped onion to match the green pepper. I will make this often. Sorry I didn't have leftovers for sandwitches. I will next time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I thought this was VERY bland. I thought this was VERY bland. I used mini-meatload pans and the cheese globbed up and did not melt properly. I thought the Rotel would add some kick but it didn't. I even added extra seasonings and still thought this lacked flavor. I will not be making this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have made this recipe lots! Have made this recipe lots! Always have to double or triple the batch since my family loves it so much. No matter how I alter the recipe (using favorite salsa instead of or in addition to diced tomatoes, for example), everyone loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This meatloaf is EXCELLENT! This meatloaf is EXCELLENT!!!! We substituted ground turkey for the beef, and placed it in a muffin pan instead of a loaf pan, it cut the cooking time down and they were VERY GOOD. Mini Meatloafs are so much better and Fun!!!!
