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.

Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Prepare the Ingredients
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), ¼ 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.
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.
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.
Finish the Butternut Squash
After 10-12 minutes, carefully remove baking sheet with butternut squash from oven. Top butternut squash with corn, hatch chiles (to taste), 1 tsp. olive oil, and ¼ tsp. salt. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.
Roast again in hot oven until butternut squash is golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
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!
