Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl until smooth, then whisk in 1/3 cup barbeque sauce, garlic, chipotle chiles, adobo sauce, kosher salt, black pepper, celery salt, cumin, and Worcestershire sauce until evenly smooth. Mix in the onion, oatmeal, and ground beef with your hands until evenly blended. Pack the mixture into the prepared pan. Brush the top of the meatloaf with 2 more tablespoons of barbeque sauce.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • Everyone's tolerance for spice varies, so feel free to change it up. I like medium spice, my husband prefers milder. Both of us were happy with the 3 seeded chilies; it was not "hot", but had a great smokey flavor. If you want more heat you can increase number of chilies, or do not remove seeds.
  • For sandwiches the next day, heat slices of meatloaf on a griddle or frying pan to crisp it up. Add additional barbeque sauce. Serve on heated sandwich roll (onion is great) with a slice of swiss cheese. If you prefer a cold sandwich, try a simple chipotle-mayo dressing.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

If you really enjoy that smokey flavor there are tons of chipotle recipes on the internet. I take a can of chipotles (undrained) and puree it until smooth. Put it in a small jar and refrigerate...

Yum! We really enjoyed this. I agree that the chipotle may be too hot for some, but it was fine for us. You may want to sub part of the chipotle/adobo with smoked paprika to keep the smoky flavo...

This is such a good variation for meatloaf! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. I would highly recommend this recipe, and to follow it as-directed...
