The first recipe I tried needed a bit of amending and ended up being a cross between my old standby and a "spicy" meatloaf. It originally called for sriracha hot chili sauce, which I did not have on hand. So I replaced it with hot sauce and it ended up having a nice spicy flavor without being overpowering or extremely hot.
