Success Hint
You can make this meat loaf in a 9x5-inch loaf pan, but patting it into a loaf in a slightly larger pan allows a nice brown surface to form on the top and sides.
Did You Know?
Small cans of tomatoes with green chilies are available in a couple of brands. They are sometimes found in the Mexican foods section and sometimes are with the canned vegetables. If you can't find a 10-ounce can, use a little more than 1 cup from a 14.5-ounce can of Mexican-flavor diced tomatoes.
