Mexican Meatloaf

I love a great rice dish. I could eat rice everyday. So, when my mother In-law Linda made her Mexican Meatloaf it was an instant favorite of mine. It's one of those dishes that you can serve with a veggie and have a complete meal. Give this recipe a try you won't be disappointed!

  Mexican Meatloaf cooked and ready to enjoy!

1 lb of Ground Beef

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 16oz Jar of Picante Sauce
2 tsp. of diced Jalapeno 
6 cups of cooked rice (2 uncooked=six)
2 cups of Shredded Cheese (Mexican style is really good)
2 cups of Fritos, Crushed (optional) 

in a large skillet brown meat then drain; return to pan. Add cooked rice, soups, jalapeno and salsa to meat and stir till combined. Pour into a 9x13 dish and top with cheese. Cook at 375 degrees for 20 minutes add the crushed Fritos and bake another 5-10 minutes. Remove and let sit for 2-5 mins then serve.
