Crock Pot Chipotle Meatloaf

"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!)"

Ready In:
120hrs 15mins
2 loaves




  • 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.

    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!


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="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
