Our Poblano Meatloaf is a tangy, Tex-ified twist to an American classic. This mighty meatloaf recipe uses finely chopped veggies to create a lighter meatloaf that has a subtle smokey flavor from roasted poblano peppers.  Using Texas Tang BBQ sauce or Candy Jalapeno BBQ Sauce as a glaze elevates this recipe for an authentic taste of comfort that’s better than the typical ketchup versions.

Ingredients
  

  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 medium onion

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

  • 6 oz H-E-B brand garlic flavored croutons

Instructions
 

  • Directions
    Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Roast poblano peppers and red pepper on grill till the skin is blistered. Once removed from the grill and cool to the touch, use the flat edge of a knife and scrape the blistered parts off exposing the tender flesh.  Add this to a food processor bowl.

  • Now add croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, thyme, onion, carrot and garlic. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture, but not pureed. Combine the veggie/bread crumb mixture, ground sirloin, and ground chuck. Add the egg and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing and working the meat too much.

  • Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray. Grab a silicon basting brush and generously apply 1/2 bottle of Texas Tang BBQ or Candy Jalapeno BBQ Sauce to meatloaf.

  • Insert a temperature probe at a 45 degree angle into the top of the meatloaf. We like to use a BlueDot Wireless from Thermoworks. 
  • Avoid touching the bottom of the tray with the probe so you get a true reading in the center of the loaf. Set the probe for 155 degrees. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before serving. 
  • Enjoy with mashed potatoes for a true comfort food experience.
