This was my first recipe that I made from ‘The 21 Day Sugar Detox’ and there are not enough positive adjectives to describe how amazing these Mini Mexi-Meatloaves are. In fact, these are so good that the next time I make them, I plan on making two batches. One for the present and one to freeze for grab snacks.
