A note about serious food allergies

Let's not limit the delicious flavors of Mexican food to something wrapped in a tortilla. (Even that is an insulting level of reduction of an amazing cuisine, but nevermind that…) Bring the cheesy, fiery, tomato-y goodness to a loaf o' meat, and be floored by all you taste there. Mexican meatloaf is there to stay.
