We’re putting a delicious, spicy twist on traditional meatloaf by roasting it with an irresistible topping of tangy-sweet ketchup mixed with fiery chipotle paste (made from chipotle chiles, which are simply dried, smoked jalapeños). It’s perfectly accompanied by our simple sides of smooth mashed potatoes and roasted shishitos or squash sprinkled with cotija cheese.
