Pickapeppa Jerk Seasoning, Bone Suckin BBQ Sauce on chicken legs, done on the grill, and eaten until our eyes rolled back… I can barely write this post. It was that good!

The Big Picture:

We smeared the Pickapeppa Jerk Seasoning onto the chicken, and put them in the Fridge overnight to get all happy. Then we grilled the chicken sloooowly over indirect low heat on the grill. Near the end of grilling, we slathered a bbq sauce made with Bone Suckin’ Sauce and Busha Browne’s Spicy Jerk Sauce to get a nice glaze and to add some sweetness to the mix.

Served with cole slaw and beer… this recipe was truly “food porn” and everyone was happy!

The Details:

We cut up the chicken leg “quarters” into drumsticks and thighs. This was messy and time consuming to me, but Wifey came to the rescue. Personally, I’d be happy buying the chicken

Chipotle Glazed Tex-Mex Meatloaf

Chipotle peppers, chorizo sausage, chili sauce in meatloaf. Yup, it’s that kinda good!

I’m so sorry I don’t have a picture or image yet, but … Wow! Did Wifey find a great, spicy alternative to the usual “Italian style” meatloaf we all know and love. This recipe is courtesy of everyone’s good friend Emeril. (Just try sitting in on his show, without a 2 year waiting list, IF you’re lucky).

We did make a few substitutions and changes, as we did not have all the ingredients on hand. But the “Star of the Show” was the glaze… a finishing sauce if you will. Sweet, candied, spicy and oh so good.

To make the glaze:

  • 1 c. chili sauce (Heinz rocks)
  • 2 T. pepper jelly ( we used the standard measure of “more”)
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, plus 1 T. adobo sauce (again, the “more” spoon was used here)

Whisk, blend, or process this messy goodness and spread 2/3 over the meatloaf before baking, reserving the remaining 1/3 for a “dipping sauce. Yea, right, tell you what, I’m dunking my meatloaf slices. Where’s that “more” spoon?

Even tho it was our first try with a “mexican” spiced meatloaf, it won our hearts over… especially with the glaze.

Back to the original recipe – we did not have the poblanos on hand, nor the Emeril’s Southwest Essence, but we made do with chili powder, cumin, and Melissa’s Fire Roasted Red and Green Chiles. As for Emeril’s Essence… his basic essence is on his site, and it really is a great spice combo. It’s easily made at home.

Try this kicked up meatloaf for yourself… it’s a great time of year for meatloaf, and hot and spicy is always a good thing.

Have you ever ventured beyond the traditional meatloaf and spagetti sauce?

If so, let me know how and what you made.
