TURKEY Meatloaf: Saute onions in hot oil in large skillet (or in medium skillet for trial recipe) on medium-high heat 2 min. or until onions are tender. Add chilies, roasted red peppers and seasonings; stir until blended. Cook 5 min., stirring frequently. Cool 10 min.

COMBINE eggs and turkey in large bowl (or medium bowl for trial recipe). Gradually add bread crumbs, stirring gently after each addition until well blended. Add vegetable mixture; mix lightly. Let stand 15 min.

SPRAY 2-inch full hotel pan (or 1/4 hotel pan for trial recipe) with cooking spray. Shape turkey mixture evenly into 4 loaves (or 1 loaf for trial recipe); place in prepared pan, leaving spaces between loaves.

BAKE in 375°F-standard oven for 30 min.

BBQ Sauce: Meanwhile, place chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in food processor container; cover. Process until smooth. Add barbecue sauce and brown sugar; cover. Process until well blended.

REMOVE meatloaves from oven; brush evenly with the barbecue sauce mixture. Bake meatloaves an additional 15 to 20 min. or until cooked through (160°F). Let stand 10 min. before cutting each meatloaf into 6 slices.
