Notes

  • Crush Doritos into fairly small pieces to make mixing easier
  • Shape meatloaves equal sizes so they cook evenly
  • Use a digital meat thermometer inserted in the center of meatloaves to ensure internal temperature reads 160ºF
  • Meatloaves can be topped with salsa and cheese at the beginning of baking time OR part way through baking time to prevent cheese from burning
  • Meatloaves freeze well in an airtight container or freezer bag
  • We made 7 mini meat loaves and they reached 160 degrees internal temp in 30 minutes.
