1 small, finely chopped

Cremini mushrooms

4 oz, finely chopped

Uncooked 93% lean ground turkey

1 pound(s)

Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are soft and pan is mostly dry, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Place turkey, chipotle, breadcrumbs, milk, egg, chili powder, salt and 2 Tbsp barbecue sauce in a large mixing bowl; add onion mixture and combine thoroughly. Scoop 1/3 c turkey mixture into each muffin cup.
  4. In a small bowl, combine adobo sauce and remaining 3 Tbsp plus 1 tsp barbecue sauce; brush evenly over tops of meat loaves. Bake until a meat thermometer inserted in center of a meat loaf reaches 165°F, about 18-22 minutes.
