A note about serious food allergies

The word "chipotle" now brings up images of chain restaurants, but chipotle obviously didn't come from a marketing department. It came from the pepper, whose flavors are primarily smoky, but also hints of sweet in its make-up as well. It brings all the complexity to the crema that sits on top of these mighty meatloaves.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, baking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 21-25 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, baking until heated through, 21-25 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Form Meatloaves

    In a mixing bowl, combine panko and 2 Tbsp. water. Let sit, 5 minutes.

    While panko sits, halve any large butternut squash pieces to roughly match smaller pieces.

    Coarsely chop cilantro (no need to stem).

    Add ground beef, seasoning blend, half the chipotle crema (reserve remaining for garnish), 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to bowl with panko-water mixture and combine. Form mixture into two evenly-sized loaves, about 3" in length.

  2. 2

    Bake the Meatloaves

    Place meatloaves on one prepared baking sheet.

    Bake in hot oven until loaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 23-25 minutes.

    Rest baked loaves, at least 3 minutes.

    While meatloaves bake, roast butternut squash.

  3. 3

    Start the Butternut Squash

    Place butternut squash on second prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil, garlic salt, and pepper into squash.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 10-12 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Butternut Squash

    After 10-12 minutes, carefully remove baking sheet with butternut squash from oven. Top with corn, hatch chiles (to taste), 1 tsp. olive oil, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Roast again in hot oven until butternut squash is golden brown, 10-12 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping meatloaves with remaining chipotle crema and garnishing butternut squash with cheese and cilantro (to taste). Bon appétit!
