Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

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.
