  4. Add cooled filling, diced poblanos, eggs, cheese, ground beef and breadcrumbs into a large mixing bowl and mix until just combined.
  5. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients for glaze till combined.
  6. Line a sheet tray with parchment that’s been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and form your meatloaf in the center of the tray.
  7. Once loaf is formed, using a pastry brush, baste glaze on top of meatloaf.
