From the Test Kitchen

Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. 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 a duo of roasted carrots and green beans topped with creamy cilantro sauce.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then halve lengthwise. Cut off and discard any stems from the green beans. In a bowl, whisk together the ketchup, sugar, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

In a large bowl, combine the beef, mirepoix, breadcumbs, and egg; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Transfer to a sheet pan. Shape the mixture into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Transfer half the glaze to a separate bowl and set aside for serving. Evenly top the meatloaf with the remaining glaze. Roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven and let rest at least 2 minutes.
