Mexican Meat Loaf

This is another comfort food for Fall. I have been meaning to try this recipe for years. I found it in a favorite cookbook called Hay Day Country Market. I have made tons of recipes from this book over the years and have had this recipe earmarked to try. My family enjoyed it. Let me rephrase that. My daughter and husband enjoyed it. It mades lots and we have now have leftovers. It is not a traditional meatloaf and mashed potatoes kind of dinner. Here is the recipe.
Mexican Meat Loaf
2 pds ground beef
2 large eggs
16 cured olives chopped
3/4tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1tsp salt
1 garlic clove crushed
5 oz jack cheese shredded
2 cups salsa
1 cup bread crumbs
3 corn tortillas shredded
1 head chopped lettuce
1/2 cup sour cream
1 chopped tomatoes
1/2 chopped onion
preheat oven to 350
combine beef, eggs, olives, cumin, chili powder, salt and a heaping cup of cheese in large bowl. Measure 1 cup of salsa and add bread crumbs. Blend thoroughly. Press into 9 inch round pan. Spread 1/2 cup salsa over meat. Shred tortillas into thin ribbons and scatter over meat. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 50-60 minutes until brown and crisp on top. Let cool 10 minutes. Place a small pile of lettuce, onions and tomatoes on each plate. Top with wedge of meatloaf, salsa and scoop of sour-cream.
