I have yet to try making a meatloaf. When I saw the National Meatloaf Appreciation Day event at Serious Eats I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try making a meatloaf. But what kind of meatloaf to make? After searching the web for a while I came across this tasty sounding recipe for a turkey and chipotle meat loaf. Making the meat loaf was super easy! Just mix everything and bake for an hour. The meat loaf turned out to be pretty tasty. It was nice and moist and full of flavour. I topped it with some salsa and I am thinking that some sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese would also be nice. Given that it requires two pounds of ground meat to fill a 9×5 inch loaf pan I now have a lot of leftovers that will make quick lunches for the rest of the week.
Chipotle Turkey Meat Loaf
- 2 pounds ground turkey
- 2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (chopped)
- 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
- 1 onion (chopped)
- 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon cumin (ground)
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup cilantro (chopped)
- Mix everything in a large bowl.
- Pour the mixture into a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
- Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven for 1 hour.

Your turkey loaf looks moist…most times ground turkey can be dry…you succeeded.
I also like the use of oats…reminds me of haggis.
I really enjoy your blog – the recipes look delicious and original.. and I can relate to having to cook in a closet size kitchen! My boyfriend and I live in Montreal and our kitchen is barely big enough for the 2 of us.. so I understand the challenge!
Kevin, looks great! MMM..leftover meatloaf sandwiches are one of my favorite things.
Wow! This looks so tasty I love turkey, and certainly I try this dish
It must be the weather – I just made a meatloaf, too. Meatloaf sandwiches…..yum!
Looks great, must remember the oatmeal next time…
WOW Kevin – this looks great. I will definately have to give this one a try. I’ll try it with some ground turkey. I’ve submitted a post for National meatloaf Appreciation Day as well.

I made this and it was absolutely delicious! I split it into two because it would have taken forever to cook in my oven. Thanks for a great recipe!
