Crock Pot Chipotle Meatloaf
- Ready In:
- 120hrs 15mins
- 2 lbs ground meat (I use 1 lb beef, 1 lb turkey)
- 2 -3 tablespoons italian seasoning
- 1 onion, grated (with juice)
- 1⁄4 cup carrot, grated
- 2 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
- 1⁄3 cup portabella mushroom, minced
- 2⁄3 cup frozen spinach
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄3 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce (Asian hot chile sauce)
- 1 cup cracker, crushed (I use Cheez-its and Triscuits)
- 1⁄3 cup Italian breadcrumbs
- 1⁄4 cup cheese, shredded (I use Sargento's Shredded Chipotle, yum!)
- 1⁄4 cup tomato sauce
- 1 chipotle pepper, pulverized
- Mix first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Be careful not to overwork, otherwise your loaf will be tough (hint for any meatloaf!).
- In another bowl, beat eggs with ketchup, sour cream and sriracha sauce. Add to meat mixture.
- Stir in cracker/breadcrumbs and cheese until just mixed inches.
- Shape into two loaves, place in crock pot.
- Mix tomato sauce and chipotle pepper, spread on top of loaf.
- Cook on med-low for 5 hours or until done.
- 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.

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!

I love food. I love my family. I love my animals. I love life. I really enjoy simple but special recipes. My "kids" (2 "big dogs" and a cat) usually are my taste testers...(not to mention disposals)... I look forward to having some human responses to my creations.....More than that, I hope you enjoy and find some happiness in all of them. I've enjoyed creating/collecting, it is my priviledge to share with my Zaar friends! Favorite cookbook? Of my 500 or so, I must say Sid Goldstein's "The Wine Lover's Cookbook" takes top rank. Decadent, but absolutely amazing food, and pairs everything up with the appropriate wine to boot! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
