Smokey Chipotle Meatloaf

You like things spicy?  Well, this is the meal for you! 

This is most certainly NOT your mommas meatloaf.  Between the hickory barbecue sauce and the chipotles in adobo sauce, this meatloaf was kickin'!

Spicy as it was, I wouldn't change a thing.  It was full of flavor and tasted awesome! 

We ate it with a roasted garlic potato salad.  Super delicious meal but maybe not the best date night meal, just sayin'.

Smokey Chipotle Meatloaf
Adapted from Allrecipes

2 eggs
1/3 cup BBQ sauce 1 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (I puree the chipotles in the sauce)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. celery seed
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup dry oatmeal
2 lbs. ground turkey, 93% lean
1/3 tbsp. bbq sauce (for top)

Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl, whisk 1/3 cup bbq sauce, garlic, chipotle sauce, salt, pepper, celery seed, cumin and Worcestershire sauce until evenly smooth.  Mix in the onion, oatmeal and ground turkey with your hands until evenly blended. Pack the mixture into the prepared pan.  Brush the top of the meatloaf with 1/3 cup more bbq sauce.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 for about an hour until no longer pink on the inside and center reads at least 160 degrees F.
