CHIPOTLE LIME MEXICAN TURKEY MEATLOAF

Here is a recipe that I am quite proud to post. Now I know that many of you probably have meatloaf a few times a month, and in all truth, it's probably becoming a bit (for lack of a better word) boring! Here I have created a new meatloaf recipe that is sure to surprise many of you. I have made a meatloaf that has a few of my favourite Mexican flavours. I definitely gave myself a pat on the back for this one. Although this picture makes the meatloaf look like the same old, the flavours of spicy chipotle, and lime zest will jump out at you as you take the first bite. This recipe is most definitely going to be in my dinner repetoire in the future. To all of you fellow meatloaf eaters out there, I say give this a try today!

Serves 4

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F

Baking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp Montreal steak seasoning blend
  • coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper (use sparingly)
  • 2 tbsp sundried tomatoes, chopped 
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • handful of fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 chipotle in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped finely
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • zest of 2 limes
  • juice of one lime
  • ketchup (to drizzle on top of the meatloaf)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with foil. In a large mixing bowl, add in the ground turkey, Montreal seasoning, salt, pepper, sundried tomatoes, garlic, onion, cilantro, egg, chipotle, and mushrooms.

2. Take 2 slices of bread, and soak it in 1/4 cup of milk. Using your clean hands, break the bread into little pieces. Add it into the meatloaf mixture. Add the zest of 2 limes, and the lime juice. With your hands, mix the meatloaf ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix, the meatloaf will become tough.

3. Pour the meatloaf mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and shape it into a large oval shape. Drizzle ketchup generously over the top of the meatloaf, and place the meatloaf into the oven to bake at 400 F for about 30 minutes or until cooked through. Serve warm along side a baked sweet potato, and a side salad.

Cook's Tip: Can substitute turkey for ground chicken, pork or even beef.
