Well to solve that problem, I’m sharing my super Easy Mexican Meatloaf recipe. This tasty recipe can be freezed and you can even cook it in your crockpot.

I am a freezing cooking girl and I love my crockpot so this is what I did. I put mine in a pan and I turned it over inside of a galloon freezer bag. I flipped the meatloaf over and I took it out of the pan. Then I froze it. You can place it in your crock pot for 6-8 hours on low. I absolutely love this recipe. You can top it with ketchup. I however decided to add more salsa to mine.

So how did this turn into this ?
