This is a recipe I came up with the other evening to satisfy my craving for comfort food. I needed a one-dish meal, as my crock-pot is the only cooking apparatus I have left after kitchen fire. Great for getting your veggies without extra work or dishes (I love to use spinach and mushrooms whenever I can!). Makes fantastic sandwiches next day (also makes yummy meatballs!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Be careful not to overwork, otherwise your loaf will be tough (hint for any meatloaf!).
  2. In another bowl, beat eggs with ketchup, sour cream and sriracha sauce. Add to meat mixture.
  3. Stir in cracker/breadcrumbs and cheese until just mixed inches.
  4. Shape into two loaves, place in crock pot.
  5. Mix tomato sauce and chipotle pepper, spread on top of loaf.
  6. Cook on med-low for 5 hours or until done.
  7. If desired, sprinkle some shredded Chipotle cheese on top of loaf about 10 mins before serving. You can also make a gravy out of the "juice" that results in bottom of pan by adding some beef broth and thickening with cornstarch.

This meatloaf is incredible!! Very moist, perfectly seasoned and I LOVE the chipotle topping. There's not much left over but I'm looking forward to a yummy sandwich for lunch tomorrow! I'm sorry you had a kitchen fire but I'm glad you created this meatloaf!

Excellent! I had to throw something together for the family that they could serve at mealtime while I was at an evening meeting and stumbled across this recipe. I loosely followed it, omiting ingredients that I did not have on hand (i.e. chipotle cheese) and it STILL turned out amazing. Great basic recipe with fun unique twist. Will definetly make again using ingredients called for. Thanks!
