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.

  • ⅓ cup Guajillo Chile Pepper Sauce

Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. Place the prepared cauliflower and peppers on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

Shape the mixture into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Evenly top with the remaining guajillo- barbecue sauce. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes.
