I don't know about you, but I've become particularly fond of ground turkey.
I first started using ground turkey because it's a healthy alternative to beef, but now,
it's because I just really enjoy the taste of it.
I enjoy the Turkey Feta Burger I make a lot, so I figured, why not a meatloaf.
And that's how this happened.
(Nice pan, right?) I covered the meatloaf with a simple Chipotle Glaze.
All that goes into that is a few tablespoons of ketchup mixed with
about a tsp of chipotle puree.
Chipotle puree is something I keep in my fridge at all times.
It's exactly as it sounds. I just puree a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in my food processor, and there you have it. Covered in the fridge, it keeps pretty much indefinitely.
I mix the puree with mayo, lime juice and some salt and pepper, and serve it has a
spread for lots of different kinds of burgers, fish tacos and sandwiches.
In fact, that's the way we ate this meatloaf.
On buns with some of the chipotle/mayo spread I just talked about.
Look at the feta, onions and peppers in this. So moist!!
I think adding dill pickle slices and some thinly sliced red onion would be really good.
Doesn't look like much but the flavor is out of this world.
I would actually toast my bun with a little butter next time, but either way....delicious!
