2 lbs. ground turkey
1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs (or 16 saltine crackers, or 3 slices bread crumbled)
1/3 cup ketcup
1 3.5-oz. package Lawry's or other meatloaf seasoning mixture (or even 1/2 cup taco seasoning, for a Tex-Mex flavor)
1/2 small onion, diced
2 pasilla peppers, diced
1 small potato, peeled & shredded (optional-omit if you want a less starchy meatloaf)
1 small carrot, peeled & shredded
1/4 bunch cilantro, leaves only, chopped.
1 cup water
2 eggs, lightly beaten (or 1/2 cup of egg beaters)
