Chipotle Glazed Tex Mex Meatloaf with Cheddar Chives Mashed Potatoes

Another use for canned Chipotle peppers in adobo is this spicy meatloaf recipe.

Marilyn whipped up this easy meatloaf recipe for us today. Using chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, green chiles, and hot pepper jelly, this meatloaf is our new favorite recipe.

Here’s a pic of the finished meatloaves:

She combined aspects of both Emeril Lagasse’s Tex-Mex Meatloaf, and Rachel Ray’s Texas Hold-Em Mini Chipotle Burgers. We’ve made both recipes separately, and can tell you they are both delicious!

If you make anything from this recipe, do the sauce to drizzle on the meatloaf. It rocks!

She used canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, canned chopped green chiles, and Heine Hurtin’ Hot Sauce for the pepper jelly, but you could use any Jalapeno or other pepper jelly (Four Monks is good).

Because either one of these great dishes are made indoors, they give you the spicy, smoky, burger-esque flavors you crave from your grill when it’s just too cold outside to do it.

BBQAddicts.com Venture to the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival

They have a great video of Aaron and Jason making the Explosions for the crowd, which includes the ceremonious Bacon Explosion Parade featuring the Dancing Bacon Girl.

While they were cooking the 30+ chubs of Bacon Explosions, the crowd dined on … yes, bacon! Bacon Cheeseburgers with Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos and Tater Tots, bacon breakfast sandwiches and bacon. Oh, and lots and lots of beer.

As someone who’s made a few Bacon Explosions, which are awesome and so easy, I’d like to point out that each one includes 3 – 4lbs of pork! One to 2 lbs bacon and about 2lbs of sausage! We’re talking about 128 pounds of pork goodness! Des Moines will never be the same.
