Chipotle ( Turkey ) Meatloaf

From Cooking Light December 2005. It calls for 2 pounds of ground turkey. I made this for my husband using 1/2 turkey and 1/2 lean beef since he doesn't like turkey loaves - it gave it the flavor of beef while still lightening it up. He loved it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  3. Place turkey mixture in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  5. While loaf bakes, combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl; brush over meat loaf.
  6. Cover and bake an additional 30 minutes or until thermometer registers 160°.
  7. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

By far the best turkey meatloaf recipe ever. I didn't change a thing. The taste of the meatloaf was full flavored and extremely good. I don't usually like ground turkey but I am trying to acquire a taste for it. If all of the recipes I have tried were this good I would already be a convert. This helps greatly. Thanks

Best meatloaf I've ever had! Even our son who won't eat anything with "ground meat" loved it! What a great surprise.

I loved this recipe. I used 1 lb of turkey and cut everythig else in half. It was a hit! I was really surprised when this turned out better then ANY of my traditional meatloaf recipes. I will be making this regularly!
