From the Test Kitchen

For layers of bold flavor in this savory turkey meatloaf, we’re coating it just before baking with a blend of our spicy guajillo pepper sauce and sweet barbecue sauce, then reserving some to garnish the finished dish. It’s perfectly paired with a duo of roasted cauliflower and poblano pepper—topped with sweet piquante peppers for a bright, punchy finish.
