You’re Having Another Couple Over for Dinner … Tonight!

February 2, 2010 by

It's Wednesday and you've decided last minute to have friends over tonight for dinner...

Are you crazy!? It's smack dab in the middle of the week!

You have a full day of work ahead of you...

Which means you have about an hour to prepare once you get home.

But that's ok ...

You just need an easy main course with minimal steps and ingredients ... and properly timed sides to go with it.

Of course you also need flavor that rocks just as much as if you had more time.

Now before you turn your nose up at my recommendation, I want you to put aside any aversions you have to this dish.

Meatloaf is one of those dinner recipes that parents have abused for generations.

But give it a chance ... this recipe will make you see meatloaf in a whole new light.

Using corn chips instead of bread crumbs or crackers makes this meatloaf recipe unforgettable. And the chili sauce seals the deal, giving it enough flavor to make the “I cover all meatloaf with ketchup” eaters, say goodbye to their beloved condiment.

Just one bite will give you a whole new outlook on meatloaf ... I promise.

So the next time you're having another couple over for dinner following a full day of work, print off this recipe at work and get your game face on.  You have the perfect recipe for a flavorful meatloaf that will comfort and satisfy all of your guests.

Until our next meal,

Rebecca

    I put in a full day at the office then entertained a prospective client who said he hasn't eaten real food since his wife has been out of town. I was lucky to be able to snatch away the final remnant of the meatloaf before he devoured it. Have to freeze a serving for my own husband while I'm out of town!
