This simple weekday recipe brings a lot of flavor in some basic bits. Meatloaves may seem quite normal, but we spice it up chipotle pesto in the mix, and a guacamole crema plopped on top. And green beans ain't exactly a rare food find, but we spice it up with a bit of seasoning and dash of fresh tomatoes and cilantro. Weeknight doesn't have to be boring.
