Smileys Super Meatloaf
Serves: 4-6 people

Julio's Mouthwatering Steak kebabs
Serves: 6 people
Cube the steak into 1 inch pieces and soak it in Nacho's Famous Marinade Dressing sauce for at least 45 minutes prior to grilling for best taste in fusion. Chop the peppers ans onion (or use pearl onions) also in approximately 1 inch pieces to go with the steak. Slice the squash and zuccini into 3/4 inch thick slices and then cut in half for best taste.
Spray your skewers with non stick oil before preparing your kebabs. Begin preparing your kebabs mixing the vegetables and meat in the order of your choice on the bamboo sticks. Spray your skewers with non stick oil before preparing your kebabs. (Cooking and turning is easier if you use the thicker Zuccini and squash vegetables on the ends.) For tangier taste, use 3 cherry tomatoes on each skewer.
Cooking grill or medium to low heat (325 - 350 degrees) for about 6 minutes for each side for a medium rare steak or 8 minutes for each side for a medium steak. Use the remaining marinade with a bruch for a glaze while the kebabs are cooking for an ultra juicy taste. (Serve this over a bed of rice for a complete meal. Add a fresh green salad using Nacho's Famous Marinade Dressing sauce for a great flavor)
