This was moist, tender & delicious! I had enough ketchup for the loaf only so for the glaze, I opened a can of chipotles in adobo sauce - chopped up 2 of the peppers from the can along with a couple tablespoons of the adobo sauce. It added more heat but that's perfect for me. I also mixed the meat just enough to combine all the ingredients so the meat didn't get tough.
Cheddar-Stuffed Mini Meatloaves with Chipotle Glaze
From EatingWell: January/February 2012
Individual meatloaves not only take the guesswork out of portion size, they cook quicker than a large loaf. Look for ground chipotle in the spice section of the market—it gives the glaze a hit of smoke and spice. Serve with roasted broccoli and brown rice tossed with cilantro.

I've made this meatloaf once, and it was definitely a keeper!! We cook it all the time, my husband and I love it. We always make 2 small free-form loaves and comes out great every time. Once and a while it slightly crumbles, but doesn't change the delicious-ness!

I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I took ideas from other recipes to accommodate what I had on stock. I used ground turkey meat. Diced up garlic and red & yellow peppers to add to the mixture. I didn't have cheddar cheese so I used mozzarella instead. I also used panko and added some fresh basil as well. To the chipotle mixture I added a tiny bit of maple syrup. I was very happy with the turn out and will definitely make again.
I made this for dinner tonight for my husband & me. I used a little more of some of the spices because we like things on the "hot" side. My husband like the cheese surprise in the middle. I have one of those special meatloaf pans that has a rack so the drippings fall under the meatloaf itself and used that rather than the mini loaf pans and baked it with potatoes and a butternut squash so it took about an hour. I usually use oatmeal rather than the breadcrumbs but thought it was fine with the breadcrumbs. Will definitely make again.
