Chipotle Meatloaf

This is THE best meatloaf recipe I've ever made. I tweaked it to suit our tastes and found perfection. YUM!



1-7 oz. can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobe sauce

1/2 c. finely chopped onion

1/2 c. chopped cilantro

1/2 c. regular oats

1/4 c. tomato sauce

1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. basil

1/4 tsp. black pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 large eggs

2 lbs. of ground turkey


Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare meat loaf, remove 1-2 chipotle chiles and 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can; reserve remaining chiles and sauce for another use. Finely chop chiles. Combine chile, adobo sauce, onion, through to the ground turkey in a large bowl, stirring to combine. Place turkey mixture in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes.

To prepare topping, combine 1/4 cup tomato sauce, ketchup, and hot sauce in a small bowl; brush mixture evenly over meat loaf. Cover and bake an additional 30 minutes or until thermometer registers 160°. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Goes well with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad.
