A note about serious food allergies

Chipotle is smoked ripe jalapeños, not their own little pepper. (You learn something new everyday!) It's a versatile pepper, bringing a smoky, earthy yumminess to whatever thing they touch, including the creamy cheese sauce here. The sauce covers the meatloaves with amazing goodness you'll be shocked you made yourself. Learn (and taste) something new here.

Cooking Guidelines

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

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as ground pork in Steps 2 and 3, baking in hot oven until beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 18-20 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground pork in Steps 2 and 3, baking in hot oven until burger is heated through, 18-20 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince cilantro, leaves and stems. Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Finely crush crackers into crumbs. Peel husk off corn, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Meatloaves

    Thoroughly combine ground pork, crushed crackers, seasoning blend, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a mixing bowl. Form ground pork mixture into two equally-sized ovals, about 1½-2"-thick. Place loaves on one side of prepared baking sheet.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meatloaves and Corn

    Add corn to empty side of baking sheet and top with 1 tsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt. Massage oil and salt into corn. Bake in hot oven until corn is tender and meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 18-20 minutes. When loaves and corn have 5 minutes left to bake, make cilantro butter and sauce.

  4. 4

    Make Cilantro Butter

    In another mixing bowl, combine softened butter, half the cilantro (reserve remaining for garnish), ½ tsp. lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Place a small pot over medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup water, cream cheese, chipotle pesto (to taste), and a pinch of salt to hot pot. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until smooth, 1-2 minutes. If sauce is too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner and stir in mozzarella. If desired, slice meatloaves into ½" slices. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spooning sauce over meatloaves and garnishing with remaining cilantro. Slather corn with cilantro butter and squeeze lime wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
