I wouldn't really call this recipe a vintage one but it is one I have had for a few years.

2 lbs lean ground beef
1 box (6-oz) stuffing mix for chicken
1 can (14 1/2-oz) Mexican-style diced tomatoes with juices
1 1/2 cups Shredded 4-cheese Mexican-style cheese, divided
1 cup chunky salsa, divided
2 eggs
4 garlic cloves minced
2 tbsp packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, stuffing mix, tomatoes, 1 1/4 cups of the cheese, 3/4 cup of the salsa, eggs, and garlic until well mixed.

Shape the mixture into 2 equal loaves and place side by side in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Bake meatloaves at 375 degrees for 50 minutes.

While meatloaves bake, combine the remaining salsa with the brown sugar.

Remove meatloaf from oven and spread the salsa/sugar mixture over the top of the loaves.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese over tops.  Return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes or until done.

Yield: 8 servings

Note: One of the meatloaves may be cooled, tightly wrapped, and frozen for later use.
