Mexican Coffee Meatloaf
By: Nancy - Las Vegas, NV - Recipe Contest 2015
"I usually make Mexican Empanadas with this recipe, but I tweaked the recipe a bit to make a meatloaf instead, by adding coffee, pine nuts instead of raisins, and allspice instead of cinnamon,
This is a fan-submitted recipe. It was not made in the kitchen of the Door County Coffee Cafe.
