In my quest to find a great Meatloaf recipe, I happened upon this little find. It came from a Biggest Loser episode where Tara and her mom were cooking. Now the first time I made it I didn't have the "Chipotle in Adobo" this time I tried it with it ( using only about a 1/4 of what it called for) and man was it Tasty! Though it was too spicy for the kiddos, they did not enjoy it. But I thought it was absolutely amazing, the flavor was incredible and I loved the crunchy bits of veggies in every bite. I think next time I will do half with the chipotle and half without.
*Bonus this recipe when made with fat free ketchup, egg whites and lean ground turkey breast is only 110 calories a patty!
Here is my adaptation of the recipe.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or turkey
1/2 an onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 C. quick cooking oats
1 egg white
1/2 of a 4oz can chipotle in adobo
Finely chop all veggies and chipotles. Then mix all ingredients together by hand. Form into balls and put into muffin tins, drizzle with ketchup. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 min.
