“Make sure you add more spice than they tell you to”–so says my husband anytime I try out a new recipe. What can I say?  Mr Mango likes his spicy food.  

We tried out this recipe for a spicy turkey meatloaf for a weeknight dinner and served it up with some mashed potatoes. This meatloaf contains mushrooms to help with the moisture and a touch of Sriracha to add that spicy note. Next time I *will* add a bit more Sriracha.
