Turkey Chorizo Meatloaf

  I want to share with you one of my favorite grocery store items. Chorizo! And not just any chorizo… This particular chorizo is FANTASTICALLY delicious while also maintaining a low fat content. While I have no qualms with high-fat animal products, I am notably impressed when a lean sausage makes my taste buds happy. Most sausages are great…
